As part of the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy Safety Review in 2018 the Department considered evidence from other European countries on the effectiveness of different ways of improving the safety of those who walk and cycle. The Government response to the Safety Review included a commitment to learn from, and give input into, best practice across Europe for safe and popular cycling and walking infrastructure, and to explore ways of collaborating more closely on this with countries such as the Netherlands and Denmark.
