Campaigners propose new law for funding cycling and walking

Six campaigning groups, including CTC, have come together to back amendments to the Infrastructure Bill which would force the Government to plan for greater investment in cycling and walking.
The new law would require Government to prepare plans for cycling expenditure

With transport funds diverted to major road building and other large infrastructure projects, cash for walking and cycling is in danger of falling off a cliff edge after 2016.

An amendment to the Infrastructure Bill, currently before Parliament, is due to be tabled by Lords Berkeley and Judd when the House of Lords returns from the summer recess.

It proposes a system of investment similar to that used for the railways, which has helped drive rail traffic to levels not seen since the 1920s.
