City and Environmental Services Capital Programme – 2016/17 Consolidated Report

Dave Merrett made comments in regards to the Clarence Street Bus Improvement Scheme Scrutiny and hoped that elements of the capital programme would be maintained such as the Bus Priority scheme.

 

Revisions to the Strategic Cycle Route Network Evaluation and Prioritisation Methodology

Paul Hepworth, from Cycling UK informed the Executive Member that Cycling UK supported the proposals as they would be of benefit as they would cut journey times to cycling commuters. He confirmed that new developments within the city needed to connect up to the strategic cycle route network and that it was necessary for planning contributions to be obtained from developers to fund work on the network.

 

Councillor D’Agorne mentioned a number of the schemes included in the annexes to the Officer’s report including;

 

·        the Heslington East-City Centre scheme. He suggested that an alternative bus scheme in Heslington Village could be introduced.

·        He requested that the following schemes be classified as priority and integrated within a transport strategy for the Local Plan:

 

·        5 -High Petergate / Low

Petergate / Colliergate /Fossgate / Walmgate(or Lendal / Blake Street, Davygate, Parliament Street

 

·      6 -Museum Street /Lendal Bridge / Station Road

 

·        13- Castle Piccadilly Foss Bridge

 

Dave Merrett spoke about the geography and the provision for cyclists on the routes within the strategic cycle network in particular; he was supportive of identifying whole routes on the network, and was concerned about the number of cross routes which had been displayed. He added that most cycling routes were towards the city centre and did not identify which of the bridges they were crossing, and the facilities on the bridges for cyclists were poor, particularly for those who were less confident.

 

He also commented about overall national funding for cycling per head of population, as he felt too little had been spent. He urged the Executive Member to continue to lobby the government.
