Welcome to our latest bulletin provides local residents and businesses with up to date information on the Wendover Cycleways project.


Overview


The council has secured £500K from HS2 for sustainable travel improvement and wants your views. Further information on each proposed route can be found below.

This project aims to:

  • improve connectivity in Wendover and therefore help promote sustainable travel.

  • encourage cycling for shorter journeys in Wendover through developing the cycling network.

This bulletin provides details of the construction timeline for the project, with construction commencing on Monday 24 January, along with specific information on when construction works will be undertaken for each cycleway route.

Cycleway Proposals (a reminder)

The proposals are:

  • Railway Station Access – linking the existing Amber Way cycleway along Aylesbury Road to the Railway Station

  • Amber Way Improvements - on the northern footway along Aylesbury Road between Halton Lane and Castle Park Road. Additionally, the existing shared use cycleway between Worlds End Lane and Halton Lane will also be resurfaced and widened

  • School Access – extending the existing Amber Way cycleway along Aylesbury Road towards the schools along Wharf Road
