Pop-up Cycle lanes

The Government has made £250 million available to councils like yours, telling them to make significant changes to their road layouts and give more space to cyclists and pedestrians, to help people move around safely as the lockdown is eased, but while social distancing remains hugely important.

We really need you to add your support too, and to encourage your council to ask for a share of this money and begin installing pop-up cycle lanes, widening pavements and taking other measures to help people socially distance whilst walking and cycling as lockdown restrictions start to ease.

Many councils across the country have already begun taking action – why not check out our interactive map to see if yours is one of them. However, in every single local authority, there’s still much more that needs to be done to enable people to travel safely as lockdown measures are eased.

With money available from Government and a clear direction to councils to start acting quickly, it’s vitally important that council leaders also know this matters to their constituents, which is why we’re asking you to write to your council today.

If you want space for people to walk and cycle, and space to socially distance, please ask your council to do what many already have, and to take action now.
