Increased safety for pedestrians and cyclists (vulnerable road users)
Pedestrian and cyclist casualties increased between 2005 and 2008 with some variability in the number of casualties between 2008 and 2018. The actual number killed or seriously injured was 67 in 2018, which is above the five year rolling average of 56 (2014-2018). The rolling average trend-line shows that although serious casualty numbers have fluctuated since 2010, the overall trend shows increasing numbers of casualties. The RLTP target of 28 casualties or below (in 2025) will be difficult to achieve if this trend continues.
