Help build a new cycle route to the West!

For a number of years a group of volunteers has come together to campaign for the creation of a new cycle route in Peterborough, west of the existing Green wheel, that would avoid the dangerous stretch of the A47. This group, The Peterborough Cycle West Project now has a viable design and the support of the major landowners, Nene Park Trust and Nene Valley railway. 

The proposed new route would connect with the existing route from the city that runs to Castor and Ailsworth and go through the village of Sutton before crossing the river Nene via a new set of steps and the footbridge to the Nene Valley Railway (NVR) station at Wansford. Once over the river cyclists could cross the A1 and go further afield. The new route would be a major improvement for local cyclists of all kinds, both for families wanting to cycle out to the NVR station, for cycle-commuters wishing to cycle to and from the city and for local people wanting to travel between local villages. It would also compliment the planned route for ‘non-motorised users’ that Highways England will eventually be building alongside the improved A47.

The project now needs help your help!

The project will shortly be applying for planning permission to Peterborough City Council and so needs to show how many people support the new route and wishes to encourage more people to cycle for their health, their enjoyment and to reduce the need for car travel.

If you value the work that Peterborough Cycle West project has been doing and want to see the new route built please email calasraid99@gmail.com, giving your name and address and confirm that you support our vision for a new, safe route for cyclists to the west of Peterborough .
