Karen welcomes launch of £200 million fund to improve walking and cycling routes


Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley has welcomed the launch today of a £200 million fund to improve walking and cycling routes, making it easier for people to get around their local area safely.

The £200 million fund, will allow local authorities to apply for money for upgrades to walking and cycling routes – including creating more paths in rural areas and making it safer for children to walk to school.

Active Travel England is inviting local authorities to apply for funding to make improvements to enable people to choose active travel, which can help them save money and stay healthy.

Karen said,

“Walking and cycling in the Staffordshire Moorlands has so many benefits but too often people are put off because it’s not convenient or they feel unsafe. I welcome the announcement of the £200 million fund and hope that our local councils will be successful in their applications.”

Projects will be designed in consultation with residents and businesses to ensure schemes are safe and work for local communities and the successful projects will be announced later this year.
