Emergency Active Travel Fund

Walking and cycling are good for our physical and mental health. Switching more journeys to active travel will improve health, quality of life and the environment, and local productivity, while at the same time reducing costs to the public purse. These are substantial 'win-wins' that benefit individual people and the community as a whole.

The Department for Transport has announced emergency grant funding which supports local transport authorities with producing cycling and walking facilities. Tranche 1 supports the installation of temporary projects for the COVID-19 pandemic.
