The same amount of cash was given to Portsmouth City Council to spend on transport.

Cllr Humby said: ‘If people consider changing the way they travel for some or part of their journeys, this could have a significant impact on congestion levels, journey time reliability, and – if they are cycling or walking – their health, wellbeing and budget.’
