Marshalls launch campaign to deliver products to support Active Travel

The UK Government’s Active Travel Fund has presented an opportunity to create a lasting change to how people move around towns and cities.

Marshalls new campaign “Active Travel & Social Distancing” responds to the Government taking a more active approach to re-allocate road space in towns and cities in response to COVID-19.

With the UK Government currently advising against the use of public transport, where possible, towns and cities are getting ready for an increase in pedestrians and cyclists. £2bn has been pledged to support local authorities, enabling them to provide safer cycling and walking routes in areas that currently have a high congestion of traffic and public transport.

Marshalls plc is the largest hard landscape supplier in the UK and we have provided products for domestic projects and large commercial schemes, such as Trafalgar Square, for over 130 years. With our expertise of transforming public spaces combined with our great mix of temporary and permanent ranges, we can help towns and cities adapt quickly and effectively to this demand for safer pedestrian routes.

From tactile paving and bollards, to kerbs and cycle storage, our products work together to provide a single solution to help re-allocate road space. With most of the changes needed imminently, we are proud to say that 94% of our commercial are manufactured in the UK, meaning we have a ready supply of most products and others can be delivered on short lead times.

The Government’s Active Travel Fund has presented an opportunity to create a lasting change to how people move around towns and cities. Installing infrastructure that supports safe cycling and walking will not only have a positive impact on health and wellbeing, it will also reduce emissions and be a transformative step towards a more sustainable future.
