20th Anniversary Of The National Cycle Network

EDM number 507 in 2015-16, proposed by Drew Hendry on 13/10/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Cycling.

That this House offers its congratulations to Sustrans on the National Cycle Network as it turns 20 years old in 2015; notes that the Network runs for over 14,000 miles across the UK, linking up villages, towns and cities; acknowledges that in 2014 the Network saw over 4.9 million people make 764 million trips by bike and on foot; further notes that the Network has saved the UK economy more than £7 billion (equivalent to £1 million a day) since it was established 20 years ago by improving people's health and reducing congestion, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and that the Network has saved the NHS £22 million from reducing obesity and overweight alone in the last year; commends the commitment of the Scottish Government to increase spending on walking and cycling this year; and, given the large amount of people who wish to cycle on a cross-border basis, calls on the Prime Minister to personally commit to cycling and walking and making active travel a cross-cutting, cross departmental priority for England and also to work with the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive to enable people across the UK to walk and bike many more local and everyday journeys.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
