Independent transport planning specialist Phil Jones Associates has been appointed to a consortium with engineering consultancies WSP and Mott Macdonald to support the development of the first Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans by local authorities across England.

A team of project managers will provide support to 35 local authorities that have been awarded LCWIP assistance by the Department for Transport. PJA is also supplying a team of renowned experts in transport planning, infrastructure design, road safety and public health to provide additional specialist inputs and capture good practice.

The development and creation of LCWIPs is an important part of the Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy - which aims to increase cycling and walking by making them the natural choices for shorter journeys or part of a longer journey.

Adrian Lord of PJA said: “We welcome the opportunity to contribute to this key aspect of the government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, and look forward to working with local authorities to develop programmes of work to make walking and cycling safe and convenient.”

PJA, WSP and Mott MacDonald will work with a range of unitary, county and combined authorities to develop LCWIPs that cover different scales and address many different transport challenges.
