The Department for Transport’s annual National Travel Attitudes (Wave 5) study has found that the majority of people (nearly two thirds) support the roll out of dedicated cycle lanes, even if it comes at the expense of less road space for cars.
Each year the online and telephone survey of people across England seeks to gauge the public mood on various travel forms and, coming on the day #BikeIsBest launch a witty new campaign video (below) asking whether the appropriate tool for the job is used for many journeys, the DfT data confirms a warming stance on cycling for transport.
In the headline findings, off-road and segregated cycle paths (55%), safer roads (53%) and well-maintained road surfaces for cycling (49%) were chosen most often when people were asked about things that would encourage them to cycle more.
