Funding for cycling

The Scottish Government has recently doubled its annual investment in cycling and walking to 80 million (13.50 per head of population) in 2018-19 - see https://www.cyclinguk.org/press-release/2017-09-05/scotland-doubles-annual-funding-cycling-walking-%c2%a380m and http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0052/00524214.pdf .

Dutch cycling infrastructure

Dutch cycling infrastructure is the best in the world. The image shows a junction from Groningen, but similar junctions are standard throughout the Netherlands (look on Google Street View). The image is high resolution, and can be viewed full-screen, by right-clicking on it and selecting "View Image", or by zooming in via the "View" menu (depending on browser).

Note
  • the protected cycle track on both sides of the road
  • the parked vehicles do not obstruct cycling
  • the grass growing in the cracks - the junction has been there for years.
The norm is that traffic lights have a phase just for cyclists - so all cyclists can cross in any direction without having to encounter motor vehicles.
