The government has announced investment of £250 million into greener transport. Encouraging pop-up cycle lanes, wider pavements, safer junctions, school streets and bus only corridors.
Since lockdown, the number of people on bikes has grown by 70% and interest in bikes has increased by 118%. 40% of urban journeys were under 2 miles* and are therefore well suited to walking or cycling.
In the post-pandemic world people will need more space. Many local authorities have already begun to make changes, and the government is encouraging more to secure a lasting legacy of greener, safer transport.
