Reallocate funds for Roads & HS2 to shared pedestrian & cycle paths

Petition Details

The Government should invest in the creation of dual cycle & pedestrian paths to encourage sustainable & active travel, and which could aid social distancing in public spaces.

Economic cases for road projects & HS2 were based on increased use, but coronavirus has transformed IT use for work etc.

Additional Information

This investment could make social distancing easier & safer, encourage active & sustainable transport, make local public open spaces more accessible & inclusive & usable in all weather conditions. It could start in months, not years, as local authorities Parks and Transport teams may have shelf ready projects to create away from road networks in Singapore's Park Connector Networks style, & should stimulate the economy

Increasing road & rail use is potentially less likely with the covid changes to business.
