Three in four want more spending on cycle lanes in UK cities – survey
Just 30% of respondents from seven cities say it is safe to cycle where they live, and many believe protected lanes would help
The vast majority of UK city dwellers would support their taxes being spent on building cycle lanes, believing their city would be a better place to live and work if more people swapped their cars for bicycles, according to a study.
Sustrans, the cycling and walking advocacy group, found that although just 6% of people commute to work by bike, 75% would like to see more money spent on cycling infrastructure and 78% support building more protected bike lanes, even if this could mean less space for other road traffic.
