Through the Cycle City Ambition (CCA) Programme, the Department for Transport provided £191 million capital funding grants to eight English cities, or groups of cities1, between 2013 and 2018.

The evaluation of the CCA Programme is focussed on 14 schemes in the eight cities, comprising between 24% and 66% of the DfT grant. The schemes include ‘cycle superhighways’; shorter segregated cycle routes; ‘mixed strategic cycle routes’ that combine quiet roads, routes through green space, and segregated paths; city-centre schemes; improvements on a network of canal towpaths; and junction treatments.

This report provides an interim assessment of the CCA Programme. A final evaluation will be undertaken in 2020.
