New Cycle routes from PMH (aka Princess Mary Gate) by year end

posted 8 Nov 2011, 12:17 by Eli Kling

What a turn around since the last time we report on this only a few weeks ago. With the new offer of £125,000 from Sustrans, the national sustainable transport charity, plus the original £170,000 from the developers there is now enough money to meet the the cost of cycle routes from the PMH site (the old Princess Mary Hospital) to the clock tower and to the school campus via Manor Road.

After much consultation BCC approved the plans and work will commence mid November. Peter Hardy, Cabinet Member for Planning and Transport, said: "This is great news for Wendover, the launch of these two new routes will link the new housing estate to the local schools and to the wider community of Wendover village centre. Not only will this encourage an increase in safer cycling to the schools and into the town centre, the scheme also benefits pedestrians and will improve access for all residents. We hope that more people will be cycling in Wendover, making use of these excellent facilities."
