  1. Given the health benefits of active transport I am certainly keen to encourage it where possible. 

  2. I think such programs can help to encourage people to be more active. 

  3. People will not ride if they don't feel safe or well catered for at the end of their ride particularly if they are commuting so infrastructure is important. 

  4. I think such a proposal has merit and could value add to the existing foreshore trail on the Eastern Shore. I am not aware of the specifics of this proposal in terms of feasibility and cost.
I have, however, ridden between Lauderdale and Tranmere both ways on a number of occasions and the road is quite narrow in parts.
