Death from air pollution would be cut if UK hits walking and cycling targets
Meeting government walking and cycling targets would save 13,000 lives and almost £10bn, finds Sustrans study
If the UK hits government targets for walking and cycling more than 13,000 lives and almost £10bn would be saved over the next decade, according to a new report.
The study from the transport charity Sustrans has found that meeting government plans in England and Scotland for an increase in walking or cycling would reduce deaths from air pollution by more than 13,000 in the next 10 years. It would also save almost £9.31bn.
