The Government’s response to the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) Safety Review was published in November 2018.

The CWIS Safety Review 50 point action plan, published alongside the Government’s response, sets the framework for consultation on more detailed proposals and a targeted programme of research over the next two years.

Three of these actions relate to the reviewing of guidance in The Highway Code to improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians and horse-riders. The Department is currently agreeing the scope and delivery of this review, which will be conducted in consultation with our stakeholders, according to the Department’s usual practice.
