Active Travel Fund - Tranche 3

A consultation on the proposals for the A611 Derby Road, Mansfield is now live. Make sure to have your say before 23 November.The Department for Transport (DfT) has awarded Nottinghamshire County Council £4.6m as part of its Tranche 3 bid proposals.  This funding has been allocated to deliver the following cycle schemes in the county:

  • A611 Derby Road, Mansfield
  • A612 Colwick Loop Road, Netherfield
  • B6021 Kirkby Folly Road, Sutton in Ashfield

Further information on the Council’s Active Travel Fund Tranche 3 bid can be found on the main Active Travel Fund web page and in the Active Travel Fund Tranche 3 Transport and Environment Committee Report.

The funding secures the delivery of these three schemes subject to the necessary design, consultation, and approval processes.

The County Council will be undertaking a public and stakeholder consultation on each of the schemes.  The first scheme to go to public consultation is the A611 Derby Road in Mansfield. 

A611 Derby Road, Mansfield

The proposed cycle scheme is for a new one-way protected cycle track on both the north and south side of Derby Road, between Cauldwell Road and A60 Nottingham Road. The proposed scheme will include improvements for pedestrians and cyclists at the junction of A60 Nottingham Road with Derby Road, and at the junction of Derby Road with Cauldwell Road. The proposals include constructing a combination of on-road and off-road protected cycle tracks, and the relocation and upgrade of existing footpaths to complement the cycle route proposals.  A new Toucan crossing is proposed on Derby Road, to the west of the vehicular access to the Vision West Nottinghamshire College campus. The cycle route will run adjacent to the College campus and provide a link to connect existing walking and cycling infrastructure in the area.

Having worked with the DfT's executive body, Active Travel England, a feasibility design has been undertaken which meets the current cycle design standards.  We are now looking to undertake public and stakeholder consultation on the proposed scheme design. The consultation will be undertaken in accordance with the consultation plan. The consultation will be used to determine support for the proposals. Comments from the survey will also be taken into consideration as part of the next phase of the design process.

The proposed scheme is for a protected cycle track between Private Road number 1 and Victoria Retail Park.  The scheme is an extension to a proposal to upgrade a section of the existing A612 shared use cycle track secured through the Transforming Cities Fund.  The scheme would create a high standard cycle route that improves cycle access to a key retail site from nearby residential areas and the city.

The proposed scheme is to provide a high-quality cycle route between Sutton Parkway railway station and Hamilton Road to link to existing cycle facilities which provide a connection to Oakham Business Park in Mansfield.  The proposed cycle route will include improvements on Penny Emma Way for pedestrians and cyclists from the Sutton Parkway railway station access up to the junction of Penny Emma Way with Kirkby Folly Road. This will include improvements to the junction for both pedestrians and cyclists.  The proposals also include improvements to the existing cycle route provision along Kirkby Folly Road on the east side up to Newark Road.  A new Toucan crossing is proposed on Newark Road near Hamilton Road, providing a connection to Hamilton Road through the industrial estate, with Hamilton Road becoming a ‘mixed traffic street’.

NCC submitted an expression of interest to deliver a Mini-Holland scheme in Stapleford, alongside the ATF Tranche 3 bid.  The DfT has also awarded NCC £79K to explore the potential Mini-Holland scheme in Stapleford.  Further information can be found on the Stapleford Mini-Holland webpage.
