star this property answer text <p>Defra has not carried out a specific assessment of the effect on air quality of the number of journeys taken by bicycle. However, the Government is committed to increasing cycling and walking and making our roads safer for vulnerable users, including cyclists and pedestrians.</p><p> </p><p>The benefits of cycling and walking are considerable. For people, it means cheaper travel and better health. For businesses, it means increased productivity and increased footfall in shops. And for society as a whole it means less congestion, better air quality, and vibrant, attractive places and communities.</p><p> </p><p>The Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in 2017, sets out the Government’s plans for cycling and walking, with an ambition up to 2040 for “making cycling and walking the natural choices for short journeys or as part of a longer journey”. The strategy also identifies £2 billion of financial resources which may be invested in cycling and walking during the Spending Review 2015 settlement period 2016/17-2020/21.</p>
