DfT publish second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News , Political News

The Department for Transport has published the second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS2), which sets out objectives and an estimated almost £4bn of investment across Government through to 2025 to deliver the commitments outlined in the Prime Minister’s ‘Gear Change’ plan.

The aims and targets in CWIS1, alongside the vision set out in Gear Change (2020), have informed our revised set of CWIS2 objectives to:

  • increase the percentage of short journeys in towns and cities that are walked or cycled
  • increase walking
  • double cycling
  • increase the percentage of children aged 5 to 10 who usually walk to school

Alongside this, we have also laid the second CWIS Report to Parliament, which outlines the progress made towards achieving the aims and objectives set out in CWIS1.

A Written Ministerial Statement has also been laid in both Houses.
