Walking and cycling proposals are often regarded as an add-on to more substantial transport planning proposals such as roads infrastructure or public transport proposals. There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, existing transport models usually cannot sufficiently demonstrate the role of active travel modes. Secondly, cost-benefit analyses of a switch of mode, for example from car to bicycle, are currently generally unable to quantify welfare gain to the user, such as health benefit. Lastly, transport planning is often focussed on issues concerned with the movement of powered vehicles.

This failure to substantially consider the role of walking and cycling in transportation solutions is in contrast with the importance placed on these modes by the Scottish Government, which recognises the considerable health and environmental benefits that these modes can offer.

As for other modes, the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance can and should provide a useful framework to help authorities consider the costs and benefits of potential cycling and walking proposals.
