Walking & Cycling Action Plan for Wales 2009-2013, Monitoring Report
Statistics on Monitoring ‘A Walking and Cycling Action Plan for Wales 2009-2013’ include data for Wales for 2007 up to 2009. This is the first of a series of bulletins that will be released on an annual basis.
Since the publication of this bulletin we have been notified by Sport Wales that the data in Table 3 and referred to in Paragraph 3.6 have been withdrawn due to problems identified with data processing. We are working with Sport Wales and the Office for National Statistics to resolve this issue. We will republish the data in Table 3 and accompanying text in Paragraph 3.6 as soon as possible.
The key points from this release are:
- The target to increase the percentage of children who walk to school to match the UK National Average was met in 2007-08. The percentage of 5-16 year olds walking to school in Wales is currently 45 per cent.
- The target to triple the percentage of children cycling to school cannot currently be monitored against the baseline set in the Action Plan due to a substantial change in the survey used to monitor this target. We are working with colleagues responsible for the Action Plan to develop an alternative data source.
- The target to increase the number of people who walk to work to 20 per cent has not been met currently. However, the latest available data does show that there has been an increase in the proportion of people walking to work up from the baseline of 10.3 per cent to 11.0 per cent.
- The target to triple the percentage of adults whose main mode of travel to work is cycling has not been met currently. The latest available data shows that the proportion of adults cycling to work is stable at the baseline level of 1.4 per cent.
- The target to increase the number of people walking for recreation to 50 per cent has not been met currently. The latest available data shows that the proportion of adults who have done any walking (over 2 miles) in the past four weeks has fallen to 34 per cent from the baseline of 40 per cent.
- The target to double the percentage of adults cycling for recreation has not been met currently. However, the latest available data does show that there has been an increase in the proportion of people who have cycled in the past four weeks up from the baseline of 5 per cent to 8 per cent.
