Following unprecedented levels of walking and cycling across the UK during the pandemic, the government announced a funding package to help encourage more people to choose alternatives to public transport when they need to travel, making healthier habits easier and helping make sure the road, bus and rail networks are ready to respond to future increases in demand. This grant funding supports local transport authorities with producing cycling and walk facilities and was awarded in 2 tranches:
- tranche 1 supported the installation of temporary projects for the COVID-19 pandemic
- tranche 2 supports the creation of longer-term projects
More information about how the government are helping councils can be found on the gov.uk Transport Secretary's travel fund announcement page.

How much money is being given to Surrey?
On 25 June 2020, Surrey was granted £848,000 by the government to support the roll out of the first phase of active travel schemes (Tranche 1). This money was for emergency temporary measures to aid social distancing and encourage more cycling and walking, such as additional cycle parking, widening of footways and one-way streets.
On 13 November 2020 it was announced that Surrey had been allocated a further £6,445,750 to carry out our second phase of works for longer term permanent schemes (Tranche 2).
