The Central Sydney Walk to School Research Program 2005-2007 was conducted in response to the ongoing decline in the percentage of school children aged 10-12 who walk to and from school, and because of the significant health, social and environmental benefits that result from reduced car use and increased walking. The program was a cluster randomised controlled trial which developed, implemented and evaluated a multi-component intervention to increase the number of upper primary school children who walked all or some of the way to and from school. The project was funded by the Health Promotion Demonstration Research Grants Scheme.
