Cycling taskforce in Scotland

Last Updated: 11/23/2016

Ambitious cycling plans in Scotland are being reinvigorated with the introduction of a new taskforce. Transport Minister Humza Yousaf announced the plans for a taskforce, the main aim of which will be to drive forward ambitious cycling infrastructure such as segregated cycle paths, at the Active Travel Summit last week. The Minister also unveiled details of the latest round of the multi-million pound Community Links PLUS competition which seeks ambitious design projects that restore balance in Scotland’s streets in favour of people walking and cycling. The new taskforce, chaired by Transport Scotland, will begin its work following the publication of the updated Cycling Action Plan for Scotland in December. Key organisations such as COSLA, the Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland and other delivery partners will be invited to take an active part in the group.
