As well as the much publicised London mayoral election, in just under two weeks the Scots also go to the polls, to select their next government. As transport policy is largely devolved, the vote could make a big difference to anyone who cycles or walks.
Campaign group We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote – which is supported by over two dozen organisations and primarily funded by Cycling UK – aim get all parties to sign up to three key policy pledges:
• Investment: Provide sustained, long term investment in both cycling and walking, reaching 10% of the transport budget
• Infrastructure: Build and maintain dedicated cycling infrastructure, enabling people aged 8-80 to cycle•
• Safety: Promote and deliver safer roads for both walking and cycling
