The Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) does not contain measures to improve and extend the national footpath network. However, funding has been provided under the CWIS to improve walking routes alongside highways and to improve road crossings in towns and cities, including through the £210 million Cycle Ambition Cities programme.
