Hundreds of people called for the doubling of investment in active travel at the Cycle on the Senedd in Cardiff last week.
Campaigners converged on the National Assembly of Wales to lobby the Welsh Government to fulfil the promises made in the Active Travel Act.
They called for investment in walking and cycling to be increased to £20 per head, as recommended in a recent report by the Assembly’s Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee.
The Welsh Government is currently spending just £10 per head, half of the level in Scotland.
David Melding, the Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Heritage, Culture & Media, was one of the Assembly Members leading the calls.
The South Wales Central AM said:
"There was a fantastic turnout on the steps of the Senedd to call for a greater investment in Active Travel.
"Active travel is so important for both our mental and physical well-being, and it's simply unacceptable that the Welsh Government is currently spending just £10 per head.
"I regularly walk into work and notice the impact straight away, so I can't help but try and encourage others so that they can see and feel the benefits too!
"It was great to see the range of support from a number of organisations. Lets get Wales more active!".
