I had had an email from Sustrans in association with other cycling groups :
The Infrastructure Bill has proposed a five year investment plan for strategic roads whilst rail already has such a plan in place. However, there is no similar framework in place for cycling and walking.
We would like MPs to back an amendment to the Infrastructure Bill to guarantee long-term ambition and funding for cycling and walking, including local road maintenance.
We are now at a critical stage as MPs will get the chance to propose amendments and debate the need for such a proposal in December and January.
We need your help. Please write to your MP and ask them to support an amendment to the Infrastructure Bill.
Both our local MPs should be sympathetic but having constituents letters helps their backbones !
