On 14th May 2022 the Government announced £161 million of capital funding for active travel schemes across England as part of £200 million of support for active travel.

Local authorities across the North West region received just under £31 million of this, which equates to around 19%. Liverpool City Region Combined Authority was awarded a little under £12 million, or around 7% of the total, to support schemes across the region including St Helens.

In addition Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Cheshire East Council each received £78,947 of revenue funding to carry out Mini-Holland feasibility funding.
