Government leadership and ambition required to champion walking and cycling
The economic, human and environmental costs of inactivity, climate change, air pollution and traffic congestion are huge.
In Active Travel: increasing levels of walking and cycling in England, the Transport Committee calls for leadership from Government through more ambitious targets and increased funding. Ministers must signal to local authorities and the public that active travel is a priority with long-term benefits for individuals and the country as a whole.
Yet another report reaches the obvious conclusions.
I expect its recommendations will get as much attention as all the rest.
That is, lip service but no real change in transport policies.
