star this property answer text <p>Cycling has many benefits, both for the individual and for society as a whole, and requires good cycling infrastructure. The Government’s first ever statutory Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in April 2017, sets out the £1.2 billion of funding that is available to support cycling and walking over the period to 2021. Since its publication, the Government has announced further support for cycling and walking infrastructure, including around £77 million of schemes funded through the National Productivity Investment Fund, and the potential for significant investment through the new £1.7 billion Transforming Cities Fund. Many of the funding decisions are for local authorities, and the Department is helping them to produce Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans which will help make the case for investment in their own areas.</p> more like this
