A new website has been launched bringing together key information and evidence relating to walking, pedestrians, and active travel in Scotland.
Walkipedia provides quick access to relevant legislation, policies, strategies, guidance, research websites and statistics as well as to organisations, detailing their programmes, initiatives and toolkits that have been developed.
Paths for All and Living Streets Scotland have developed this with practitioners in mind and to those developing and designing, implementing, managing, promoting and evaluating walking initiatives and infrastructure.
There is a summary of each information source, relevant key facts and figures as well as some other key points. There are links to the main documents, organisations and associated programmes. Some of the key statistics have been pulled together into infographics for you to use.
If you work in the areas of walking, active travel, planning and design, road safety, community engagement, climate change and sustainability, air quality, transport planning and engineering, physical, mental and social health, and, behaviour change, you should find this resource useful.
