Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Local Sustainable Transport Measures in Response to Covid19

In addition to general comments on our Active Travel Network we are also seeking input into sustainable transport measures in response to Covid-19. We welcome suggestions that will enable safe social distancing and ideas to support the positive shift to more sustainable travel habits that we have seen during lockdown. If you have any ideas that relate to this please select the Covid-19 option on question 4 when adding your comment to the consultation above.

Please continue to visit our Newsroom for the latest information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
