There is an unprecedented £2 billion of investment in cycling and walking over the rest of this Parliament. Ministers and officials from this Department have regular discussions with their counterparts in the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and other Government Departments to ensure that their programmes are fully aligned with the Government’s cycling and walking aims. The Government will continue to make funding available to local transport authorities through a wide range of funding streams, including some administered by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.
