Active Travel Fund Programme
We have been awarded funding of £1,378,450 from the Department for Transport’s Emergency Active Travel Fund to improve our streets and neighbourhoods and make them cleaner and safer for all to enjoy.
Earlier this year we were awarded than £405,000 from the fund. This was used on initiatives including the creation of ‘pop up’ cycle lanes in Leicester, helping key workers in particular to get around safely during the coronavirus pandemic.
This new funding will be used to help make some of these cycling and walking routes more permanent, as well as to stop traffic from rat-running through neighbourhoods. More space will be created on local streets for people who want to walk or cycle to get around.
