Active Travel England
This weekend the government announced the launch of Active Travel England, helping to create safer streets for cycling and walking, boost air quality and improve the health and wellbeing of the nation.
- Cycling and walking are not only beneficial for our health and the environment, but are also brilliant ways to connect communities.
- That is why the Conservative government has launched Active Travel England to drive up the standards of cycling and walking infrastructure, and we have also announced a further £5.5 million of funding for local authorities, train operators and businesses to encourage a variety of active travel schemes.
- This will give people up and down the country the opportunity to access different forms of travel, support local businesses with the transition to green transport and improve cycling and walking standards for everyone.
