Active travel programme

What we are doing to help people walk, wheel or cycle more.

We want to give people more options for travel by creating and maintaining infrastructure that is accessible for all, safe to use, direct and well connected. We want to reduce the barriers people face, particularly for every day short journeys such as travelling to work, school and the shops.

By encouraging and enabling more people to undertake journeys actively (walking, wheeling and cycling) we can help to improve people’s health and wellbeing, reduce traffic congestion and create better environments.

We have established an active travel programme to identify, develop and secure funding to deliver high quality infrastructure improvements. The programme will also deliver components to encourage behavioural change; providing people with the skills, confidence, and knowledge needed when choosing to travel more sustainably.
