Key Features:

  • Cycle Infrastructure Inspectorate – similar in principle to Ofsted
  • Local people will be given the chance to choose whether residential side streets should be closed to through traffic, to make them safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Active Travel England will refuse to fund paint only cycle lanes without physical separation barriers from traffic.
  • Also will not fund routes where cyclists and pedestrians have to share the same space
  • Could cut budgets in other areas of highway dept’s which fail to deliver on active transport
  • Cycle training for every adult or child if required
  • Urban main roads could be made for access only, with through routes for buses, cyclists and pedestrians.
