Answered by: Humza Yousaf 16 January 2018

All of the £80 million set aside for active travel in the Scottish Governments Programme for Government will be allocated to walking and cycling. This will come from the Support for Sustainable and Active Travel (SSAT) and Future Transport Fund budget lines and includes the maintenance of the figure of £7.36 m for Cycling Walking Safer Streets which is funding outwith the Local Government finance settlement.
