Government outlines vision for an active England

News : NDS

The Government wants to see access to cycle training for every child, creating a generation of new, safe cyclists according to Transport Minister Sadiq Khan.

This is one of the aims of the 'Active Travel Strategy' - published today - which outlines plans to put walking and cycling at the heart of local transport and public health strategies over the next decade.

The other aims of the strategy include:

- Every major public sector employer to be signed up to the Cycle to Work Guarantee

- Cycle parking at or within easy reach of every public building

- Sufficient secure bike parking at every rail station

- Local authorities introducing 20mph zones and limits into more residential streets to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists
