2631 km of motorways whereas in the England there are 3673 (Eurostat, 2013, via the UK Data Service). These values equate to roughly 150 km of motorway per million people in the Netherlands, compared with only 70 km per million in England, less than half.” (Lovelace, 2014: my thesis) http://etheses.whiterose.ac.uk/5027/ “The Germans drive more too.” (Melia, 2015)

and 2050 • No geographical disaggregation of cycling uptake • Nothing on who would be cycling where, replacing which modes and for what trip types • Basically, great overview, scant on detail • So the first stage was to create scenarios
