28 July 2020

The Government’s Emergency Active Travel Fund is providing a response to the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting temporary and permanent projects aimed at boosting cycling and walking with new infrastructure. The challenge facing local authorities is how to best identify suitable locations, and the appropriate solutions on those streets.

Agilysis have a wealth of experience in creating tools for transport professionals to make quick decisions about prioritisation of resources and have been working on the Active Streets Assessment Tool over recent months.

The tool offers a low cost of entry for all authorities, with access to a bespoke local portal deployed to end users within 48 hours.

This recognised the needs to access relevant information from multiple data sources as quickly as possible with the planning process for the next round of funding already underway.
