Seville Builds for People on Bicycles, with Great Success!

Seville has recently built 75kms of reasonably-good off-road cycleways, and the result has been impressive: in just a few years the number of people cycling daily has risen from 6,000 to 70,000. And these are ordinary people, wearing ordinary clothes, treating cycling as just another sensible transport choice. The city has benefitted from a significant reduction in pollution thanks to the reduced number of motor vehicles on the roads.

National Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy

The Government has voted to include the legal requirement of a national Cycling and Walking Strategy in the Infrastructure Bill. This will mean that when the Infrastructure Bill is passed, the Secretary of State for Transport will be legally obliged to produce a national strategy for investing in cycling and walking. It is quite possible that this will also mean that highway authorities, like WSCC, will also be required to produce strategies for such investment.
