Sustrans welcomes £1.5m funding for cycling and walking

MORE people will be able to cycle and walk to work thanks to new funding awarded to Devon County Council.

The £1.5 million funding has been awarded as part of £64 million of Government investment shared across 28 projects in England from 2017 - 2020.

The funds will help increase the levels of walking and cycling across the county – including Teignbridge – by supporting access to employment, education and training.

A council spokesman said: ‘The project will focus on key areas of housing and employment to change behaviour and promote more active travel, particularly on journeys to work and places of education.’
