Sam Burden hails successful bid for Birmingham’s Cycling policy

This week the Government announced that the bid for the Department for Transport’s Cycle City Ambition Grant has been successful and Birmingham have been awarded £17 million of government funding which is further topped up by Birmingham’s own funding to create an overall investment package worth £24.3 million. This will deliver the first phase of an ambitious 20 year plan to support cyclists across the city, delivering a step-change in levels of cycling and building on key cycling projects.

Sam Burden said “Cycling is one of my passions and delivers health, environmental and traffic improvement benefits for all. Birmingham has languished at the back as a supporter of cycling and I hope this provides the impetus to make Birmingham a cycling city.”
