The Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS), published in April 2017, identified £1.2 billion of funding available for cycling and walking projects over the period 2016-21. Since then, additional funding streams have been made available, including the Transforming Cities Fund, Clean Air Fund, Future High Streets Fund and Housing Infrastructure Fund. As a result, almost £2bn of funding is now projected to be invested in cycling and walking projects between 2016/17 to 2020/21 from a range of funding programmes across Government.
