Current progress

Following a successful public consultation and completion of the detail designs for the scheme, construction began on 24 January 2022 and is nearing completion. The work is expected to take 3 months and will improve the cycling and walking network and help promote sustainable travel in the town.

The work has included a combination of creating new stretches of cycleway, widening and resurfacing existing cycleways and footways and adding markings on roads and cycleway signage. All will combine to make it easier for cyclists and pedestrians to get around the town using a cohesive network.

Work has included linking the Amber Way cycleway, which currently goes from Aylesbury to Victory Road in Wendover, to Wendover railway station.

Additionally, there is a new widened cycleway between Halton Lane and Castle Park Road as well as improvements and widening along the existing cycleway between Halton Lane and Worlds End Lane.

A new extension to the Amber Way now connects the cycleway to the schools along Wharf Road.

Objectives

This project aims to:

  • improve connectivity in Wendover and therefore help promote sustainable travel
  • encourage cycling for shorter journeys in Wendover through developing the cycling network

Proposed cycleway improvements

With the available budget, these 3 cycleway improvements within Wendover are being completed.

The proposals are:

  • railway station access – linking the existing Amber Way cycleway along Aylesbury Road to the Railway Station
  • Amber Way improvements on Aylesbury Road between Halton Lane and Castle Park Road
  • school access – extending the existing Amber Way cycleway along Aylesbury Road towards the schools along Wharf Road

Funding

We have a budget of approximately £500,000 to spend on cycleway improvements, which is funded by HS2 Ltd.
