Active travel fund money to improve footpaths and cycleways in Lincolnshire




People are being asked how a pot of nearly £800,000 can be spent to help pedestrians and cyclists in Lincolnshire.

Ideas for where pavements need widening or where cycleways or road closures are needed, can be logged at www.widenmypath.com.

The money is from the second round of the government's active travel fund.

In the first round of the active travel fund, Lincolnshire County Council received £105,500 and invested in new cycle parking in Market Deeping, pop-up cycle lanes in Lincoln, and the part-pedestrianisation of Horncastle Market Place.

Richard Davies (Con- Grantham), councillor for highways at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "For the second round – worth almost eight times as much – we'll be drawing up firm plans with different local stakeholders, and making meaningful, sustainable changes from the off."

Lincolnshire County Council will be publishing information about the schemes that form part of this second round of funding soon, including details how communities can get involved in shaping those plans.
