The Department for Transport is urging the public to take part in a consultation on cycling and walking before the 1 June deadline. The department’s call for evidence on cycling and walking – Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) safety review in England – and seeks views and opinions on everything from improved infrastructure to education for all road users.
Jesse Norman, the Minister responsible for the review, said: “I want us to become a nation of cyclists, and to make cycling the natural choice of transport for people of all ages and backgrounds.
“Our call for evidence supports an open, comprehensive and thorough review across government to encourage active travel and improve safety for all road users. We particularly want to hear from vulnerable road users, so if you have ideas for improving road safety then please let us know.”
“We are determined to make cycling safer and easier across the country. Already this year we have announced an investment of £100,000 each in three innovative cycle safety projects, on top of the recent £7m to improve cycle safety. This is all part of the first-ever statutory ‘Cycling and walking investment strategy’.”
