RURAL ROUTES AND NETWORKS - CREATING AND PRESERVING ROUTES THAT ARE SUSTAINABLE, CONVENIENT, TRANQUIL, ATTRACTIVE AND SAFE

This report addresses the pressures placed on the UK countryside by the increase in growth of motorised traffic. This has resulted in community severance, increased danger for vulnerable road users, increased noise, light and environmental pollution, and reduced use of sustainable modes of transport. Proposals include: the development of joined-up non-motorised route networks; integration of highway, rights of way and transportation planning; a national code of practice for off-road routes; more care in highway engineering to avoid urbanising rural roads; more attention to developments on land adjacent to rural routes/roads, and better rural planning.
