£4m for Thames Path

The SE1 website today reports that Mayor of London Boris Johnson has approved plans to spend nearly £4 million of Olympic funds on works to improve the riverside walkway along the South Bank and Bankside in time for the 2012 games.

I wonder if this funding came with a condition that considerate cycling needs to be permitted along the Thames Path by the respective boroughs and landowners, or is most of the £4m dedicated to improving cycling part of the Jubilee (Olympic) Walking and Cycling Greenway - which is largely on currently horrible A-roads that many families are too scared to cycle along?
