The County Council was successful in securing funding to improve cycling infrastructure within Carlton and Gedling from the D2N2 Local Economic Partnership (LEP).
The Department for Transport aims to double cycle usage by 2025 throughout the country and it is hoped that the schemes can help meet these targets at a local level.
The package of works aim to:
- make cycling to work a viable choice for a significant proportion of local residents
- greatly improve the cycle infrastructure network by addressing gaps in the network which are a major barrier to accessing large employment and housing sites
- create safe, direct, convenient, attractive and continuous cycle routes.
The proposals will also deliver other key benefits such as:
- positive public health (more people exercising)
- environmental – emissions and air quality reduced
- reduce traffic congestion – modal shift to cycling.
Construction works would be undertaken by Via East Midlands from October 2018.
The total budget for the scheme is £665,000 so unfortunately some schemes will not be progressed.
