Julian welcomes £650k Government funding boost for cycling and walking projects in York

November 13, 2020

Julian has today welcomed the news that York is to get a share of £175 million of funding that has been announced by the Government to help local authorities improve infrastructure for cycling and walking in their area. 

The fund is specifically designed to improve road safety for cyclists and pedestrians, with potential projects including closing streets around schools to motorists at school times, the creation of segregated cycle lanes and the closure of residential side streets to through traffic. 

After hearing the announcement, Julian said:

I was pleased to hear that York has received funding under this really promising Government scheme. I hope that the council will invest some of this money in schemes to connect or villages as well as in the center of the city. 

It is vitally important that we give people the opportunity to choose cycling and walking for their day-to-day journeys and make the most of the health and environmental benefits. I look forward to discussing with the council the potential schemes that will benefit going forward.”
