Join up Green lanes to form island-wide safe routes for bikes
Deliver on the Dep Rob Ward's motion to resuscitate the Green lane network and add to the gaps to join them up to provide a pan-island network of lanes prioritising bikes and pedestrians over cars.
In doing so, fewer cars will use them - because they will be slow, and fewer cyclists will use the main arterial routes because the green lanes are safer.
Why the contribution is important
Frees up main arterial routes for cars/vans etc.
Encourages more cyclists by increasing safety levels on green lane network. More cyclists means fewer vehicle journeys.
