We’ve come another step closer to seeing some cycling infrastructure in Newcastle soon. In recent years Newcastle council had removed more cycling space than it created. Now the tide may be turning… not quite a biblical shift but good enough for a Christmas present we think.
The Walker route saw its technical consultation. Read our reply – in summary the verdict is “well done, much more is needed”. We also composed a joint press release with the Forum which got a mention in the Chronicle. If it all goes swimmingly (as usual, no pun intended) and the design quality is good enough, Sustrans may chuck in some £175,000 towards the scheme. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
