To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 9 February 2023 to Question 140382 on Travel: Finance, what the (a) actual and (b) predicted (i) capital and (ii) revenue funding was for active travel in each financial financial year between 2020-21 and 2024-25; and what the purpose is of each budget line.
Capital (£ million)
Revenue (£ million)
69 (actual) 2 (predicted)
The table above outlines actual dedicated funding for active travel for the period 2020/21 to 2022/23 unless indicated as predicted funding. These figures do not include funding from wider sources within the Department such as the City Region Sustainable Transport Settlements (CRSTS). The Autumn Statement of 17 November confirmed the Department for Transport’s overall funding levels for 2023-24 and 2024-25. The Department is currently considering the budget for active travel as part of its examination of all future spending plans following that Statement.
Capital funding typically funds walking and cycling infrastructure programmes such as the Active Travel Fund. Revenue funding supports a range of programmes to enable more people to walk, wheel and cycle including the Capability Fund and Bikeability.
