Ashden Award – Sustrans, Bringing cycling into the heart of communities, UK

Persuading people to make everyday journeys by foot or bike is key to cutting congestion and pollution, and improving health and happiness. Segregated cycle lanes and other infrastructure can help break down some of the barriers, as sustainable travel charity Sustrans well knows: it has just completed a five-year programme to extend the National Cycle Network into the heart of our towns and cities.
