Active Travel Budget Cuts
A pre-budget announcement on HS2 last week revealed a £380m cut to cycling and walking funding. This represents a two-thirds reduction of funding in England, and leaves just £100m for active travel in the current financial year.
Cycling and walking contributed £36.5bn to the UK economy in 2021, according to Sustrans.
Ned, Laura and Adam convene to discuss what's happening and the impact it'll have.
