The Transport Assessment should encourage a modal transport shift towards walking and cycling. High quality, traffic-free walking and cycling routes integrate effectively with the wider transport network. These links should provide realistic travel alternatives to short distance car journeys, offering direct and convenient access. Increasing active travel participation would help to reduce vehicle congestion on roads, address issues of air quality and improve public health and well-being. The PRoW Network can support public transport and the wider highway network, by providing opportunities for recreation and commuting, especially short distance journeys.
