Our response to new active travel measures

Responding to new walking and cycling measures announced today, Claire Harding, Research Director at Centre for London said:

“The proposed changes to the Highway Code to give road users who can do the greatest harm more responsibility for others’ safety are welcome, but simply telling drivers to give way to pedestrians and cyclists won’t work on its own.

“The government will need to continue to invest in new infrastructure and raise awareness of updates to the Highway Code to make this statement a reality.

“A long-term sustainable funding settlement for Transport for London would also ensure all investments in walking and cycling infrastructure work best for London and Londoners.”
