Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has set out that cyclists will take priority over cars after lockdown.

Shapps told the Transport Select Committee “we saw an extraordinary 100 per cent increase in the number of people cycling during the week at the height of the lockdown and a 200 per cent increase at the weekend”.

He went on to say “we want to make sure we are prioritising how local authorities think about road space”. The ambition is to build road space around pedestrians and cyclists, rather than building it around cars.

The Transport Secretary hopes that the increase in bike usage will continue after lockdown. There are various schemes in place to maintain the current level of cyclists such as the £25m Bike Repair Scheme. The Bike Repair Scheme will issue £50 bike repair vouchers so people can get their old bikes road worthy again.

Recent Projects

Bryan G Hall is excited to be working with GRIDSERVE Sustainable Energy Limited on a number of their Electric Forecourt® sites throughout the country.

An Electric Forecourt® is the new generation of filling station developed to meet existing and growing infrastructure demands of electric vehicle users, owners and operators. They provide a reliable, predominantly ultra-rapid EV charging facility supported by a range of ancillary services, such as coffee shop, convenience store and high-speed internet lounge designed to maximise the experience of charging and optimise the associated dwell-time.

Bryan G Hall has provided transport planning and highway design support for two of the planning applications that have recently been submitted in Norwich and Uckfield. We are currently advising on a number of other sites that GRIDSERVE is bringing forward, as well as advising on matters such as highways signage on sites that are due to open in the coming months to ensure that an Electric Forecourt® is easily located for users.

We are thrilled to be involved with this nationwide project that will help to the country to de-carbonise whilst also providing a much-needed network of charging infrastructure to support the existing and future uptake of electric vehicles.
