Well done DoT – a good competition – lets hope it is one of many to come!
The Department for Transport (DfT) has launched a £470,000 competition for innovative projects that lead to more walking and cycling. The Department is seeking proposals that will tackle current barriers and encourage more journeys made by bicycle or on foot.
