Walking and cycling routes
We need your help to develop a plan of walking and cycling routes across the city.
The plan will show not only where existing routes are but also where new routes might be needed.
We have already done quite a lot of work to map out existing walking and cycling routes but this has mainly focussed on the central areas of the city.
Now we’d like to hear from you to help us to identify routes in other parts of the city as well as potential improvements that could be made in the future.
It doesn’t matter whether you hardly ever walk or cycle or you regularly travel on foot or by bike – we still want to hear from you.
We’re interested in finding out what journeys you make, how you travel and if there are any ways you think routes could be made better.
To take part
You can take part in our online survey here to help us develop our plan
We will also be holding drop in sessions and will provide further information about these events when the details are confirmed.
This map shows the existing routes and the possible new routes that we are consulting on.
Purpose of the project
This work is being done in response to the government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, which sets out an ambition to ensure more people can use safe and convenient walking and cycling routes by 2040.
By developing this plan – called a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan – we will be able to set out what needs to be done to improve the network over the next 10 years.
We will use it to work out where the main preferred routes are in the city and areas where further routes could be developed.
This will help us to plan which areas and routes should be a priority for investment.
It will also put us in a stronger position to bid for any funding which becomes available from government, so it might result in us having more to invest.
How we’ve developed our proposals
Our proposals have been developed using guidance provided by government and additional local knowledge which we have built up through our existing work to develop our walking and cycling networks.
