Oxford Mail: “How would you spend £347,000 on cycle improvements in Oxford?
Thursday 17th July 2014 in News By Ben Holgate
THE head of transport for the city wants Oxford Mail readers to tell him how hundreds of thousands of remaining cash should be spent on improving conditions for cyclists in the city.
We revealed on Monday that only about £15,000 of a dedicated £362,000 has been spent on the Cycle City scheme over the past two years.
Now calls are being made for readers to tell the Oxford City Council exactly how the cash should be spent.
John Tanner, who took on the council’s transport role in May, said: “I’d like your readers to let us know what they’d like to see us do, and look for solutions. “I’d really like people’s ideas about where they [the council] should spend this money… The thing about cycling is that you can spend very little amounts and transform the situation.”
The Cycle City funds need to be spent by the end of the 2015-16 financial year.
