Bexley borough will receive a share of cash to help transform the landscape for cyclists in a £100million “mini-Holland” revolution.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson announced Bexley had an exceptional proposal and Transport for London will work with the council towards improving cycle routes and facilities.

“I have been incredibly impressed with the standard of the mini-Holland entries and by the thirst among all the finalists to transform themselves into better places for people,” said Boris.

“It has been so hard to choose between them that I have decided that all shall have prizes.”

Twenty outer London boroughs were eligible for the competition and 18 applied.

Jules Pipe, chairman of London Councils, said: “The ‘mini-Holland’ programme is an important part of the comprehensive approach to safety that cyclists and all road users want to see.”

Keep an eye on the Times for more details on what the allocation means for Bexley.
