DFT publishes the second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy

 

 

  • The Department for Transport publishes the second walking and cycling strategy which sets out objectives and an estimated almost £4bn of investment across Government through to 2025 to deliver the commitments outlined in the Prime Minister’s ‘Gear Change’ plan.
  • The second cycling and walking investment strategy (CWIS2) outlines the government’s ambition to make cycling and walking the natural choices for shorter journeys, or as part of a longer journey by 2040.

The revised objectives are to:

  • increase the percentage of short journeys in towns and cities that are walked or cycled
  • increase walking
  • double cycling
  • increase the percentage of children aged 5 to 10 who usually walk to school

This long-term approach will be supported through Active Travel England as part of a strategic objective to increase local authority capacity and capability around the delivery of active travel infrastructure and behaviour change programmes.
