Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire. It has a population of around 75,000 people. The most densely populated areas are to the east and the northeast of the town centre. Data shows that only 13% of commuters into Shrewsbury either walk or cycle to work even though more than a quarter of commutes are less than 2km, and more than half are less than 5km.
There are physical barriers such as the river and some steep inclines within the town that could contribute to people deciding not to walk or cycle. Shrewsbury already has lots of cycleways, but there are many opportunities to upgrade what is already there and to join these up into a more comprehensive network.
