We believe that spending £10bn over the next 5 years would transform cycling and walking in the UK, reducing congestion and pollution in cities and improve the overall health of our nation.
Active travel funding is currently only £400m on average per year (£2bn from 2016 to 2021) and only accounts for just 1.5% of transport spending in England. This level of investment is not sufficient. At current projections, this would only take the Government a third of the way towards their target of doubling cycling participation by 2025.
In order to meet targets there needs to be a huge step change in both investment and focus. We are under no illusion that making these changes will be easy, but by using our collective voices and making a stand for what we believe in, together we can help drive the movement that our society needs.
Find your local representative here and send them a letter or email urging them to make spending on cycling and walking a priority. It’s time to take meaningful action for the future of our cities and the people who live in them.
