Staffordshire is set to receive an additional £1,832,500 from the Government’s Active Travel Fund which is designed to create safe space for cycling and walking.
The money will be provided to Staffordshire County council and could be used to fund measures such as School Streets, Low Traffic Neighbourhoods and segregated cycle lanes. In total, £175 million is being allocated to local authorities across England in the latest round of allocations from the fund.
Staffordshire Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley, has welcomed the news
Commenting, Karen said:
“I know that many local residents enjoy cycling and walking in our beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands and I am delighted that Staffordshire will benefit from this additional funding to make our local areas more bike and pedestrian-friendly, while maintaining the access and space other road users still need.”
