Cycling UK has released a statement about a new report from the National Infrastructure Commission, which BikeBiz reported on last week.

The cycling charity welcomed the report’s call for further investment into high-quality cycle networks, but urged the Government to shift its transport funding priorities towards investing in local solutions involving walking and cycling.

Cycling UK policy director Roger Geffen said: "The National Infrastructure Commission rightly calls for more investment in high-quality cycle networks. Investing in more monster motorways would only worsen the congestion and pollution, which is throttling our towns and cities. Instead we need a massive shift of transport funding priorities towards simple local solutions.

“Good cycle schemes are an incredibly cost-effective way to deliver clean air, safe streets, people-friendly town-centres and the freedom for young and old alike to get around easily without relying on cars. It's a magic cure for so many ills, and Ministers really need to prescribe it for everyone's benefit."
