Western Gateway STB begins strategic cycle network study

The Western Gateway STB is pleased to confirm that we have commissioned Sustrans and Atkins to identify and develop plans for a strategic cycle network across the Western Gateway area. This network will link key settlements and include smaller towns and transport hubs. Working across local authority boundaries, the study will also facilitate longer distance cycling for work, education, leisure, tourism and other trips. The STB will use the study to identify gaps in the cycle network and bring forward a prioritised programme of schemes to fill them taking into account the importance of rural connections.

The study has begun with a report due in March 2022.
