APPGCW calls for new Highways Act – Transport Xtra.
With a specific emphasis on cycling and walking, new Act would require authorities to improve facilities for active travel as part of any change to the road network, say MPs
The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling and Walking (APPGCW) has released its inquiry report into the Government’s upcoming 2nd Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS2).
The inquiry, exploring what CWIS2 should look like, took place in July and the list of witnesses can be found online. Three evidence sessions were held.
The report makes a number of detailed and wide-ranging recommendations – which are based on evidence received from a variety of stakeholders, provided both in virtual sessions and in writing.
The inquiry was supported by Brompton Bicycle.
