Walking and Cycling Action Plan 2009 - 2013
The Welsh Assembly Government aims to encourage more people to walk and cycle more safely and more often. This Action Plan explains how we and our partners are supporting walking and cycling in Wales.
Our key objectives here are to:
- Improve the health and well being of Wales through increased physical activity;
- Improve the local environment for walkers and cyclists;
- Encourage sustainable travel to combat climate change;
- Increase levels of walking and cycling through promotion of facilities; and
- Ensure that walking and cycling are prioritised in policies, guidance and funding.
The Welsh Government currently supports a number of initiatives and organisations. These include:
- Safe Routes to Communities: Support for local authorities to develop safe walking and cycling routes and to improve accessibility;
- Trunk road improvement and a transport grant scheme that provides new walking and cycling infrastructure; and
- Funding for Sustrans Cymru, the sustainable transport charity.
- National Standards in Cycling Training: Introduction of National Standards by increasing the number of qualified instructors in Wales with the Cyclists Touring Club (CTC) Charitable Trust;
- Lets Walk Cymru: This is a Wales-wide scheme developed with the Sports Council for Wales and Countryside Council for Wales. It is tasked with increasing the number of people participating in walking as a regular activity; and
- Bike It - a Sustrans Cymru pilot scheme that aims to increase cycling to school by: raising awareness of its benefits; teaching cycle skills; and running bike to school events and rides.
