DfT’s Cycling and Walking Action Plan

The DfT has published has a 2 year action plan to make cycling and walking safer, with 50 proposed new measures.

Below is a response from the APPCG co-chairs.

Ruth Cadbury MP (Labour): “The Government have listened to the 14,000 people who responded to their consultation and come up with some bold proposals. The main ingredient that is missing is a substantial funding stream to kick-start this cycling and walking revolution. I would like some assurance that Councils will have to divert 15% of their transport transport funding – without considerable investment, high quality infrastructure will continue to be a postcode lottery”

Andrew Selous MP (Conservative): “I welcome the Department for Transport’s publication of 50 recommendations to make cycling and walking safer. This is step in the right direction and it is essential that we get cross-departmental support for these initiatives as we must improve the conditions on our roads if we are to see more people using bikes for everyday journeys”
