Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps he is taking to encourage cyclists to avoid using main roads in areas where cycle-specific infrastructure is available.
Cycle lanes, where provided, can offer cyclists a safer alternative to cycling in the main carriageway. It is not compulsory for cyclists to use them, and the Government has no plans to change this.
