Footway and Cycle Way Upgrade Ring Fence

Shropshire council has recognised the poor standard of much of the highway network and is planning significant investment in its upgrading.

Similarly, we recognise that footways and cycleways have also deteriorated significantly, posing challenges to many residents. Since we are committed to supporting and enhancing active travel it is important that a commitment to maintain a good standard for walking and cycling infrastructure is made alongside the commitment to highways. Council therefore determines that 10% of the new Highways Investment capital fund be ring fenced to bring existing footways and cycleways to a suitable managed condition, in line with the aspiration for highways, such ring fencing to be shown in the budget by establishing a new budget line for Existing Footways and Cycleways Investment, with a transfer of 10% of the Highways Investment fund to the new budget line.
