Emergency walking and cycling schemes due to coronavirus
We are introducing a range of measures to support people getting back to work, school, shopping and leisure activities as lockdown restrictions gradually ease.
As part of a £514,000 investment we are implementing a programme of ‘pop-up’ and temporary emergency active travel schemes to support people making local journeys on foot or by bike .
These schemes will be implemented before the end of September 2020, on a temporary basis. Schemes may be ‘tweaked’ following implementation in response to feedback and performance.
We would also welcome views on whether any measures implemented should be converted to permanent improvements later in the year.
Over the next two months we will focus on:
- widening and extending footways and cycleways
- junction closures and new one-way systems that make it safer for walking and cycling
- encouraging more journeys by bike
- additional cycle parking
The first set of schemes is listed below. We will be sharing more detailed information about the schemes we are putting in place as they become available.
If funding allows we will also consider the creation of various temporary cycle routes in Buckingham and a new temporary cycle route between Marlow to High Wycombe.
