£38m for active travel in Wales

Active Travel

24 July 2020
 

The Welsh Government has awarded £38m to local authorities to introduce schemes to encourage walking and cycling. 

The Government said that, together with £15.4m announced last month, this was the largest ever investment in local active travel improvements in Wales.

The Active Travel Fund provides £20m directly for 25 larger schemes and packages of schemes in 14 local authorities. All local authorities will receive a share of £9m to take forward smaller improvements and prepare larger schemes.

A £4.1m Safe Routes in Communities grant will support 22 schemes, specifically focused on creating safe walking and cycling routes to schools in 17 local authorities. A £3.9m Road Safety Capital grant will support 18 schemes across 12 local authorities. Schemes include:

Cardiff Council has received £2.8m for its cycle superhighways project.
