Briefing: walking and cycling: an action plan (UK)

The article presents an update of existing and planned measures that contribute to walking and cycling from Great Britain governments perspective. However, much of the delivery is in the hands of local authorities. The Government wants to encourage as many people as possible to walk and cycle, especially those undertaking short trips. Local authorities will have to plan their town centres giving priority to cyclists and walkers, this includes well-marked bike lanes, well-maintained and well-lit wide, clean boulevard-style pavements.
