As excitement builds for the Tour de France Grand Depart in Yorkshire, the Highways Agency is investing £20 million over the next two years to improve cycling facilities on its road network. This video highlights a cycle path improved to make it easier for people to cycle to work at a nearby industrial estate. It's one of 13 schemes being developed this year.

Fit to Tow? Play

If you're taking to the roads with a caravan, trailer or horsebox, don't set out without a final safety and maintenance check, especially if you leave it standing for most of the year.

Before setting out, make sure your trailer is properly serviced and fit to be on the road. Your trailer should be given a regular service by a reputable dealer.

To raise awareness of the safety risks involved when towing a caravan or trailer and the importance of ensuring you are towing safely, the Highways Agency has issued a new safety DVD, Fit to Tow, presented by Carol Smillie.
