The Government has published its second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) aimed at making walking and cycling the natural choices for short journeys.
The first-ever CWIS, published in April 2017, had a target of 300 walking ‘stages’ per person per year. Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking has been calling for a more ambitious target. This has been reflected in the second strategy, which sees the walking target increased to 365.
CWIS 2 also maintains a target of 55 per cent of primary school aged children walking to school by 2025.
