Scotland Makes $875 million Commitment to Active Transport

-

Scotland has become the latest country to make a radically increased commitment to active transportation.

As part of her ‘Program for Government 2020/21’ speech delivered to the Scottish Parliament on 1st September 2020, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced £500 million (A$875 million) of new funding for active transport.

“This will help local authorities develop new walkways, reallocate road space, and increase access to bikes,” she told the parliament during her speech.

“We will also implement low emission zones in our four biggest cities to improve air quality. The first of these has already been established in Glasgow, and the others will be operational by early 2022.”

The funding will be spent over the next five years.

The Scottish Government has already committed £100 million (A$175 million) for the current year.
