Departmental officials regularly meet with a range of stakeholders to discuss the design and delivery of walking and cycling infrastructure at meetings of the Department’s Cycling and Walking Infrastructure group and the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy Stakeholder Advisory Group. The latter includes a representative from the Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee.
