A team of project managers will lead support to 35 local authorities that have been awarded assistance by DfT. Phil Jones Associates is also providing a team of nationally well-known experts in transport planning, infrastructure design, road safety and public health who will be able to provide additional specialist inputs and capture good practice.
The development and creation of LCWIPs is an important part of the Government's Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy which aims to increase cycling and walking by making them the natural choices for shorter journeys or part of a longer journey.
The team will be working with a range of unitary, county and combined authorities to develop LCWIPs that cover different scales and address many different transport challenges.
The WSP/PJA/Mott MacDonald team has been appointed to the project by DfT following their previous work producing the LCWIP guidance and involvement in Highways England's Cycling, Safety and Integration programme.
