Dynamo’s response to county’s Transport Masterplan

Here is the Dynamo submission to the county council’s draft Transport Masterplan, along with specific proposals for action.  These documents were prepared for a meeting that Paul had with Hazel Walton and Andrew Hewitson of Lancashire County Council on 8 May.

We are hopeful that we will see safety improvements at junctions on the A6 south in the short term, followed by cycle lanes on South Road and improvements to Belle Vue Terrace for cycling.  The Heysham-Lancaster off-road route is also due to be schemed out.  The key issue here is, as ever, the transformation from a plan to something concrete with funding and a timescale.  Dynamo’s argument is that these should all be put in place by late summer 2016 to be ready upon the opening of the M6 link road.
