The Government’s Draft Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) has shed pounds, so that you won’t!
The Prime Minister and Cycling Minister have both said they want funding for cycling at £10 per head – the minimum necessary to start meeting the Government’s ambitions for cycling in England.
But by 2020, the CWIS will give just 72p per head to cycling and walking. Compare this to funding for highways and trunk roads, at £86 per head, that’s the same difference between 2 pints of milk with a magnum of champagne.
