Barriers to Investment in Cycling

As part of a DfT funded research project 413 stakeholders (including Reading Cycle Campaign) filled in an online survey on barriers to investing in cycling. The largest single group of respondents were local authority transport officers, while others included consultants, academics, business stakeholders, and advocates.

The top three barriers identified by respondents were:

  • financial/funding problems,

  • lack of political leadership, and

  • lack of support within the transport authority
