Make plans for buses and lorries urge CILT

The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) has welcomed the government’s plans to fund large scale projects promoting cycling in cities and national parks, but has urged it to also consider trucks and busses. The government plans to cycleproof new roads, with councils now expected to deliver infrastructure that takes cycling into account from the design stage. But the institute has asked for new road plans to also be made truckproof and busproof where possible, ensuring all road users’ needs are considered. This is an opportunity to invest in new roads on which cyclists, and modern passenger and freight vehicles can co-exist safely, said the CILT’s chief executive, Steve Agg. He adds: Successful projects elsewhere in Europe point the way for a much more cohesive network, as friendly to the cyclist as it is accessible to the buses, which gets people to work and the freight operators that keep our towns and cities’ stores stocked.
