Government plans for cycling and walking

The Government has published a pamphlet describing its "Bold future vision for cycling and walking in England". The itemised benefits are:

  • Healthier, happier and greener communities
  • Safer streets
  • Convenient and accessible travel

"Places will be truly walkable. A travel revolution in our streets, towns and communities will have made cycling a mass form of transit. Cycling and walking will be the natural first choice for many journeys with half of all journeys in towns and cities being cycled or walked by 2030."

This is very encouraging. It's packed with ideas about how councils should proceed.
