Have your say on Government plans for cycling and walking

Cycle Walk ImageFuture Government investment plans for cycle paths and to make cycling safer along with improvements for safer footways and to encourage people to walk will, in future be guided by a Cycling & Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS).

Unfortunately the government’s consultation period for the public to make suggestions on the draft strategy is very short. Consultations close this coming Monday – on 23 May 2016 (just before midnight). If you want to give your comments please click on the link below or you can email directly to the Department for Transport team at walking.cycling@dft.gsi.gov.uk

If you haven’t got much time you can go straight to the survey, which is open until Monday night: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/82MN3Q3    To read the strategy and then comment, go to this link:

Last week I attended one of the Dept for Transport’s briefings on the strategy. Here is a link to their presentation: 160511 Presentation for roadshows – London eve
