Changes to the Highway Code, including putting pedestrians at the top of a new “road user hierarchy”, have been announced by the UK transport secretary. The proposed changes, which are due to receive parliamentary approval in the autumn, will also give pedestrians priority at junctions as well as raising further awareness about the dangers of speeding. It comes as part of a £338m package to boost cycling and walking across the country from the Department for Transport (DfT). The increased funding aims to encourage the public to make “sustainable travel choices” to make “air cleaner and cities greener”.
