“Gear Change “ sets out new standards to ensure active travel provision is such that it will encourage more people to walk and cycle. As part of this initiative the government has set out new design guidelines, which should now ensure that the cycling infrastructure is of a high standard LTN1/20. As a group we are most heartened that these documents contain many of the points that have been part of our advocacy in the last 20 years. Importantly these guidelines have more sanctions than previously. If they are ignored Councils will not receive any funding from the Department of Transport. More details will be in the Cw newsletter.
