A new resource has been launched giving local authorities and schools the opportunity to generate posters identifying active travel routes free-of-charge.
The toolkit has been developed by Agilysis, who says defining and marking the safest routes is a simple way to encourage more people to travel actively.
The poster toolkit, which can be accessed online, has a variety of colour and icon combinations to help easily identify specific routes for walking and cycling.
The posters can be printed as stickers in order to be attached to street furniture.
Agilysis says with reduced public transport capacity, the potential increase in car use – and as a result the undesirable effect of increased congestion and air pollution – active travel is ever more important.
The resource builds on the Active Streets Assessment tool, which enables local authorities and travel planners to easily identify the safest, most appropriate, and desirable routes for active travel.
