The Government is committed to spending an additional £2 billion on cycling and walking schemes over this Parliament, and the bulk of this will go towards new infrastructure such as cycle lanes in city centres. The Spending Review on 27 October has provided an unprecedented multi-year funding settlement for active travel including £710 million of new funding which will enable those local authorities who wish to do so to deliver transformational changes in their areas. Further details will be set out in the second statutory Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS 2) in the spring of 2022.
