The Government's Response to the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy Safety Review was published in November 2018 and sets out how it intends to achieve its ambition to make cycling and walking a safe, easy and affordable travel option. As part of the review the Department commissioned a rapid assessment to explore the evidence around the impact of cycling and walking interventions on improving cyclists and pedestrian safety and feelings of safety, and whether these can be introduced without adversely effecting participation in cycling and walking. The results of this assessment will be published in due course.
