Government unveils new road safety measures

27 November 2018

Story from Road Safety GB.

The action plan, published on 22nd November, takes into consideration feedback from more than 14,000 people and organisations who responded to the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy safety review call for evidence.

Under the plan, councils will be given powers to tackle parking in cycle lanes, and encouraged to spend around 15% of their local transport infrastructure funding to boost walking and cycling.

In a further effort to increase levels of active travel, the DfT will appoint a new cycling and walking champion, to ensure new policies meet the needs of all road users.
