The Government is committed to meeting the various goals set out in the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, including the aim to double the amount of cycling by 2025, and is not considering any revisions. Current policy is projected to fill around one third of the gap towards the 2025 aim of 1.6 billion cycle stages, based on projected funding provision in the current Spending Review period. Further investment to meet existing aims and targets for cycling and walking post 2020/21 will be considered as part of the forthcoming Spending Review.
