    New government investment will make cycling safer and help to prevent accidents on the roads

    New government investment will make cycling safer and help to prevent accidents on the roads

    Transport Minister Norman Baker has announced that the government will invest £62 million in the cycling infrastructure of England. Urban and rural cyclists alike will benefit from the investment in terms of safety, availability of cycling routes and links between cycling routes and rail transport. 

    The announcement that the government is willing to invest £62 million in the cycling infrastructure of England illustrates their desire to improve the environment, in addition to public health. Safe urban and rural cycling routes, cycling hubs which would include cycle hire, cycle parking spaces and changing facilities and community cycling schemes, are all on the cards.

    Whether the continued interest in cycling is due to last year’s Olympic success or simply to encourage people to exercise more, the latest investment has been welcomed by leading personal injury settlements company, Accident Advice Helpline.

    A representative from the personal injury claim advice firm commented,

    “Any initiative that gets people, particularly children, exercising in the fresh air is a step in the right direction. Safety for cyclists is always going to be a concern and the fact that specific cycle routes are being planned for major cities will go a long way to allaying people’s fears in this respect.”

    £5 million of the £62 million investment is to be allocated to making dangerous junctions safer for cyclists. The fact that local authorities will be able to earmark money to add to government funding in their area, will add value to each project.

    Accident Advice Helpline is a non-fault accident claim compensation provider, who offers expert advice to innocent accident victims. Their personal injury settlements helpline is available 24 hours a day on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
