The Department has been working with key stakeholders, including Cycling UK, to undertake a review of The Highway Code to tackle the safety issues that cyclists and pedestrians face, or perceive, when travelling on our roads and support the Government’s aim of increasing cycling and walking.

On 28 July, the Government published a consultation on the proposed changes to The Highway Code which includes the 10 amendments proposed by Cycling UK. The final changes to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders will be determined by the consultation responses.
