The Department’s Local Transport Note 2/08 ‘Cycle Infrastructure Design’ provides guidance regarding minimum standards for walking and cycling infrastructure. The Department is currently in the process of updating this national guidance and will publish the updated guidance in due course.

Local authorities are responsible for setting their own design standards. The Government has no plans to legislate for minimum standards for cycling and walking infrastructure.
