You will work with government agencies and a Welsh Local Authority to evaluate a new policy which aims to increase the use of active modes of travel. The policy development is a four-year, multi-million pound investment in one Welsh town with the aim of getting a large shift in transport to active travel options. You will evaluate the impact of the policy in active travel, physical activity and inequalities with the aim of influencing policy and adoption elsewhere.
