The government should require all road schemes to improve safety for cyclists, an influential panel of MPs has urged.
The cross-party Transport Committee today outlined its views on the government’s planning framework for major transport projects.
It outlined eight points that it said would make the government’s Draft National Policy Statement on National Networks more useful.
“The NPS should require promoters of roads schemes to look to improve road safety, including for cyclists and pedestrians,” said the report.
Other suggestions included making specific reference to the desirability of connecting High Speed 2 to the existing rail network.
