...for cycle lanes, with consultation to start this week.

Wiltshire Council has received £681,000 from the second tranche of the Department for Transport’s (DfT) Active Travel Fund to progress cycling schemes in the county.

The funding is intended to make it easier and safer for pedestrians and cyclists to access shops, businesses and places of work without driving or using public transport, and also help people to maintain social distancing.

The award is less than the £908,000 that the council originally bid for, and so to establish which schemes to take forward, it is holding a consultation on the proposed options, to begin this week.

It also consulting on the first tranche of temporary schemes, which are already in place. 

The local scheme already in place, as part of tranche one, is on the A361 Hilperton Road in Trowbridge.

Among the schemes to be considered as part of tranche two is an Hilperton to Melksham via Semington scheme, removing the need for cyclists to travel on this section of the A361.
