Local traffic authorities such as Coventry are free to make their own decisions about the design of the streets under their care, provided they take account of the relevant legislation. They also have the powers to set local 20 mph speed limits or traffic calming measures in line with their local conditions and requirements, in areas heavily used by bicycles. We continue to seek to make cycling safer. That is why we launched our Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) Safety Review Call for Evidence. This closed on 1 June 2018. Over 13,000 responses were submitted and are being considered. The Department will continue to consider the evidence submitted and issue a response in due course.
