Southern corridor improvements (Nottingham Station, Queen's Walk to NTU Clifton Campus)
Much of the Southern Corridor of our Cycle Ambition cycle route is already constructed and proposals for expanding the off-road provision are being developed.
The Southern Cycle Corridor builds upon the features already introduced as part of the extension of NET to Clifton, which help cyclists travel alongside and around the tramway in a fast and direct route.
Initial pre-consultation took place in September and October 2015, with further consultation on proposals taking place from the 4th – 20th February 2016.
- High quality corridors which will segregate cyclists from general traffic whilst providing a direct route on key arterial routes into the City Centre.
- Good quality surfaces which will improve rideability and reduces the risk of road surface related incidents.
- Enhanced sustainable transport offer which will be integrated with other major transport investment across the City
- Direct connections and interchange opportunities with the new tram route
- More people on bikes and fewer in cars which will be supported by smarter choices measures such as cycle training, led rides and promotion.
- Journey to work mode share by bike of at least 10% by 2025 (from 2011 baseline of 3.5%)
- Journey to work mode share by car reduced to 39% by 2025 (from 2011 baseline of 46%)
A start date has not yet been confirmed.
