Assembly Members have voted in favour of plans to radically reform support for cyclists and walkers, to encourage more healthy lifestyles. The new law is said to be a world first.
It would force local authorities to consider the needs of both walkers and those on bikes as they plan transport networks. The Active Travel (Wales) Act also calls on Welsh Ministers and Councils to promote active travel and provide annual updates to the Welsh Assembly.
Jane Lorimer, National Director of Sustrans Cymru, said “The passing of this legislation shows that Wales’ leadership is serious about making walking and cycling the normal choice for more of our everyday shorter journeys."
