  • Bring social, economic, and environmental well-being to all
  • Construct significant stretches of greenway and cycling/walking routes
  • Encourage more people to walk and cycle as part of their daily routine (non-commute)
  • To further develop a cross border network of greenways that link people with places locally
  • Investment in the wider economic and social infrastructure in the North West Region
  • Adoption and compliance with policies such as Active Travel etc
  • Improve safety for vulnerable road users and reduce their interaction with vehicular traffic
