To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much of the Cycling Projects Fund has been allocated; and to which projects. [114775]

In the first round of the Cycling Projects Fund, 138 local projects aiming to increase cycling were awarded a total of £2.18 million. Seven of those projects have subsequently had to withdraw, leaving the total funding at just over £2 million. I have placed details of all the remaining projects in the Libraries of the House.In January this year, we invited bids for the second round of the Fund, for which we have made £1 million available. My Department is currently considering 466 applications and I expect to announce the successful bidders during June.
