Kingston Upon Thames Council in southwest London is reminding local residents that a consultation on new cycles routes in the borough is due to end on 17 July.
The public are being asked to provide feedback on the latest Go Cycle routes, currently out for public consultation.
The council says that two new routes for the £30 million Go Cycle programme – funded by the Mayor of London and Transport for London – are still open for public comment.
The routes – Kingston High Street and the New Malden to Raynes Park route – are being consulted on to obtain public feedback on plans to improve cycling facilities, road safety and public spaces in these areas.
The Kingston High Street scheme includes plans to create a two-way cycle lane that connects the local Go Cycle scheme at Portsmouth Road directly to the town centre.
A new 1.2km walking and cycling path from New Malden to Raynes Park will open up a traffic-free route between New Malden Railway Station and Raynes Park Recreation Ground.
The path – which crosses into the borough of Merton – runs along Thames Water land, parallel to the railway line, passing under the A3 Kingston by-pass and avoiding busy or lengthy alternative routes.
Journey times between these areas for pedestrians and cyclists will be improved, said the council.
Deputy leader and Go Cycle portfolio lead Councillor Terry Paton said:
“These are two very different Go Cycle schemes that we’re consulting on – but they contain the same aim, which is to help change the way people travel by encouraging walking and cycling wherever possible.
”We’ve already held a series of engagement events, which have been well attended and provided the Go Cycle team with useful feedback to our proposals.”
Councillor Hilary Gander added:
“Public engagement is a key part of helping shape the Go Cycle schemes, so I would encourage as many people as possible to please take the time to provide your ideas and thoughts on the proposals that are out for consultation.”
