Warwickshire residents encouraged to ditch the car one journey at a time

Leamington Editorial 24th Jul, 2022   0

A NEW online platform is geared towards getting Warwickshire residents to ditch their cars and choose more active ways to travel.

#JustOneJourney has been launched by Warwickshire County Council’s (WCC) road safety and active travel teams and is aimed at getting people to adopt more active ways to travel in small steps – starting with a single journey they would usually make by car.

Tips are available on the new website www.warwickshire.gov.uk/warwickshire-safe-active-travel including information about cycling and walking in Warwickshire, journey planners, travel plans, videos and route maps and information for schools, work places and communities around being more active.

Coun Wallace Redford, WCC’s spokesperson for transport and planning, said: “The benefits of active travel are huge both for the individual and for the wider environment.




“For many of us, it might seem difficult, and perhaps daunting, to know where to start as travelling by car, even for short journeys, has become so engrained in our daily lives. We are committed to supporting residents to realise that they can start their active travel adventure by switching just one car journey every week to an active alternative such as walking, cycling or scooting and hope that this new website will be an invaluable resource for all”.
