Above is an article on the PMs pledge to create 250 miles of cycle lanes over 5 years, for areas outside of the capital.
A lot better than nothing, but divided around the whole country that’s not that many miles. There should be more !
Quotes from the article;
- Mr Johnson is expected to promise to create 250 miles of new cycle paths and plans to make cycling safer in towns by expanding projects dubbed “mini Holland” schemes.
- The aim of creating “low-traffic neighbourhoods” outside of London is part of government plans to double rates of cycling by the 2025.
