66 active travel projects to benefit from £14.5 million of funding

Lee Waters, Deputy Economy and Transport Minister, has announced how £14.5 million of active travel investment will be spent across Wales.

Active travel involves making journeys by physically active means. The funding will improve and create active travel routes and facilities in Wales, as part of efforts to encourage more people to walk and cycle.

The Deputy Minister had previously called on local authorities to be radical and ambitious in their work to improve active travel. He called for proposals to go further in creating infrastructure enabling people to choose walking and cycling as the most natural way to undertake shorter journeys.

In total 66 active travel projects, as well as 6 multimodal schemes, will benefit.
