Cycling, Walking & Safety

Physical activity plays a key role in people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing, with numerous studies in recent years showing that people who walk and cycle enjoy longer and healthier lives.


Nestrans want to increase the number of people travelling actively for health and the environment.

As well as working to increase the number of people walking, cycling or wheeling, we also want people to feel confident in doing so. Nestrans will work along with partners to reduce number and severity of casualties from road traffic collisions involving active travel users. In addition we will work to improve perceptions of safety and security for active travel users.
