Cycling and walking investment strategy 2

From the Department for Transport and Chris Heaton-Harris MP announcement of the planned creation of a second cycling and walking investment strategy for actions beyond 2021.

In 2017, the government published the first statutory Cycling and walking investment strategy (CWIS 1), which covered the period between 2016 and 2021.

Since it was produced, the Secretary of State and the Prime Minister have significantly expanded the ambition and funding of the government’s cycling and walking programme, launching the Gear change: a bold vision for cycling and walking white paper in summer 2020 with £2 billion of additional funding over this Parliament for active travel – the largest amount of dedicated spending ever committed to increasing cycling and walking in this country. Significant delivery on the ground has already occurred.
