As set out in the answer to PQ 226496, Liverpool City Region has already received £172.5 million from the Transforming Cities Fund to improve and support new local transport links; these funds are available to be spent on cycling and walking schemes if they are prioritised.

In general, it is for local authorities to identify and prioritise investment for cycling and walking schemes from local funds and relevant national funding streams. Funding opportunities are available through a range of local transport and place based funds, including the Highways Maintenance Fund, Integrated Transport Block, Future High Streets Fund, Housing Infrastructure Fund and the Clean Air Fund.
