Norman Baker, the minister for local transport, has announced details of a £15m program for cycling and walking measures across the country that "will support economic growth and help to cut carbon, whilst promoting a healthier lifestyle."

The money is in addition to the £560m Local Sustainable Transport Fund.

The projects will be implemented through Sustrans and the Cycle Rail Working Group.

Sustrans will receive £8m to create more Safe Routes to Schools. 

The Cycle Rail Working Group will receive £7m to invest in improving integration between cycle and rail at stations across the country, including through improved cycle facilities at stations. This additional sum will complement other projects already being delivered by Network Rail, who are themselves delivering a £7m programme of cycle facilities at stations and safe access routes to stations.
