Greater Manchester Cycling Campaign 10-point action plan - #GMMayor response form (duplicate)
If elected as Mayor of Greater Manchester I commit to promote:
1. A Healthy Streets Agenda - Promote people-friendly streets and journeys for a more active, healthier city by working with local authorities to improve existing neighbourhood streets and walking, cycling and public transport networks, while ensuring new developments are planned so people can easily walk or cycle to local amenities or use public transport connections for longer journeys. *
Comments about a Healthy Streets Agenda (optional)
Your answer
2. A GM-wide Cycling Network - Plan and start to deliver a GM-wide network of high quality cycleways. People do not like cycling amongst busy motor-traffic or pedestrians so dedicated space for cycling is required on major thoroughfares, along with attractive, direct alternative routes where they are practical. *
