The national Space for Cycling campaign is calling on councils to improve the quality of life for all, by making our streets and roads safer and more inviting for everyone to cycle.
1. Protected space on main roads and at junctions
NOT poor pavement conversions that stop at every side road!
2. Removal of through motor traffic on residential streets
Deliveries, refuse collections and resident access would be unaffected.
3. Lower speed limits
20mph in villages and built-up areas. 40mph or lower on rural lanes.
4. Cycle-friendly town centres
People prioritised over motor traffic to create vibrant high streets.
5. Routes through green spaces and parks
6. Safe routes to schools
