Updated guidance published by the UK's top authority on improving health and social care calls on local authorities to prioritise walking, cycling and public transport over private cars.  Recommended measures include re-allocating road space by widening pavements and installing cycle lanes, closing roads and reducing vehicle speeds.

Residents, don’t be surprised when you see the faster cyclists on expensive bikes refusing to use parts of the new cycle lane this year. It is not designed to be cycled at high speed.
