Proposed cycle infrastructure schemes

The schemes below are proposed:

  • Newquay Road, Lancaster – a proposal to extend the cycle path on St George’s Quay to the new Riverside Meadows development using developer funding.  In practice, this means that the pavement beside the river (which everybody cycles on anyway) will be upgraded to a shared-use path.
  • Lancaster-Morecambe Greenway links – a link to Bartholomew Road from  the Greenway and a link to Cartmel Place.  The latter will take you along Christie Avenue to a new shared-use path along Lancaster Road to Sainsburys.  Again, this is being built with developer funding.
  • Work on Scale Hall corner to improve access to the Greenway from the north.  This will include toucan crossings.

A short stretch of cyclepath at Burrow Beck in south Lancaster has also been completed recently.

    Having again rode from the Midland Hotel back towards Lancaster, I’m reminded how naff & dangerous the first section is until you reach the cycleway.

    Is anyone aware of any planned improvements, particularly on the Polo Tower development. I would have thought something incorporated into this could lead round the back of Next & then onto the cycleway.

    Just thinking aloud,
