Making it easy and safe to choose active modes of transport for urban journeys is a critical step in reducing carbon emissions.
Creating a network of dedicated urban cycle and pedestrian routes reduces demand for heavy-duty vehicles and promotes health and wellbeing.
The Scottish Government has made a commitment to direct at least 10% of the transport budget towards active travel by 2024/25.
This investment is for creating networks of safe, segregated routes for cyclists and pedestrians (and a growing range of other active travel) which are projected to account for half of all urban journeys by 2030.
This will reduce emissions, support the transition to EVs and improve health and wellbeing in communities. If designed correctly, it can also contribute to the economic development of our towns and cities by promoting footfall in the right places.
To significantly improve the roads and paths to be active travel ready, governments across the UK have laid out plans to upgrade the infrastructure.
