Cycling and walking
Our aim is to develop a culture in Newcastle which makes it easier, safer and more fun for people of all ages to cycle and walk everyday.
As one of eight Cycle Ambition Cities in England, we are investing £16.3m from government funding, plus an additional £3m as part of our Streets for People project, to make big changes to the cycling and walking infrastructure in the city.
This has enabled us to build around 16km of new cycle routes, with another 2km to built soon and a further 10km ready to build as soon as we secure funding.
