Ontario's Transportation Minister says the government is spending more than twice the amount previously announced to help build bike lanes across the province.

Steven Del Duca says $93 million -- up from $45 million -- is being set aside this year to help 120 communities build bike lanes and biking infrastructure.

It's part of a four-year municipal commuter plan that's meant to help the province reach its greenhouse gas reduction targets.

Locally, London will see $3.3 million, Simcoe will receive $1.6 million. Woodstock is in line for $182,000, Strathroy-Caradoc $165,000, St. Thomas will receive $361,000 and Ingersoll just over $25,000.

Funding for the program comes from the proceeds of the cap-and-trade program.
