Issue details

Links to Cycle Route Through Hospital Grounds - Link from Foss Islands Route to Hospital

Purpose of report: Cyclists will benefit from a continuous cycle route from the existing Foss Islands Cycle Route, through York Hospital to Bootham. This scheme will provide a missing link in York's cycle network, and crucially, form part of the Haxby to Station route agreed with Cycling England as part of York becoming a Cycle City. Funding for this scheme has been allocated within the 08/09 Capital Programme. Therefore, the aim is to implement the scheme by the end of March 2009. The benefits of the improvements for cyclists would be seen immediately. This route through the hospital would avoid cyclists having to ride on-road along the busy Wigginton Road.

Members are asked to: Approve the proposals for implementation.
