In a plan to get around one fifth of all commuters to get into cycling by 2020, Bristol’s city council has announced a fund worth £35 million plan.

The authority plans to raise the usage of commuters using cycles as means of transport to work to 20 per cent from the current nine per cent through a number of improvements in the infrastructure, including cycling tracks which are more segregate.

Among its major initiatives, the council plans to use its funds and other grants to build commuter “corridors” towards north, north west, east and south.
