New cycle path: How Cheltenham is opting for low-emission travel

Whether it be a swift trip to the shops or a long commute into work, our choice of travel is one of the most important climate-based decisions we face each day. As it stands, the travel industry accounts for around one-fifth of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide.

Here in Cheltenham, the council has been working to find low-emission alternatives of travel. Its newest plan involves a new multi-million pound cycle path that connects Cheltenham and Gloucester. While still under construction, the council hopes that this investment will be convenient to locals and work towards tackling climate change. This comes after their introduction of e-scooters to town last year.
