The Credit Side to Cycling

Richard Taylor has uncovered some shocking figures for government waste, this time on duplicating services for cyclists...

The Department of Transport have spent over seven hundred times as much public money on their project as has been spent on Cyclestreets. Even if we add salaries for CycleStreets’ core team of Simon Nuttall and Martin Lucas-Smith (who don’t work full time on the project) the government website has cost in the order of a hundred times more than independent offering. I am regularly appalled at the poor value which government at all levels gets when it is spending our money; this is a particularly bad example.

See here for more. It is worth the visit.
