The Leicester Mercury’s Yasmin Duffin reports on the city’s missing out on Government cycling millions and LCCG’s proposal to pick up on one of the ideas the funding would have covered:
Leicester misses out on cycling cash
Leicester has failed to win Government funding to improve cycling routes.
The city council submitted a detailed bid to the Government to gain a share of its £77 million to promote cycling around the country.
But it has been announced that cities including Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford and Norwich will receive cash, but not Leicester.
