Council comes under fire for scrapping plans to boost cycling in Newcastle

Evening Chronicle – 10 January 2019

Newcastle Cycling Campaign members say they are ‘disappointed’ after the plans were scrapped.

Sally Watson said: “”The most recent of these is Barras Bridge, where cycling has been quietly removed from plans. We recently wrote to Coun Arlene Ainsley, cabinet member for transport and air quality, to express our concerns. We are still awaiting a response to this letter.”
