Government’s cycling plans will need more funding to see real change - Caroline Russell

28 July 2020

The government has announced plans to encourage cycling and walking to be funded by a previously announced £2 billion over five years. [1]

Green Party transport spokesperson Caroline Russell said:

“It’s great to see the new design guidance, proposed Highway Code updates and such enthusiastic government support for protected bike lanes and low traffic neighbourhoods.

“These transformative measures will properly enable people to make local trips safely on foot and by bike. But if we are going to see a measurable change in the way people get around, the government needs to find a lot more than £2billion.”
