D2N2 is pleased to have invested £6.1million from the Local Growth Fund into the city’s facilities for cyclists.
The Nottingham Cycle City Ambition Programme (NCCAP) involved the development of new ‘cycling corridors’ running across the city.
The Eastern cycle corridor extends from the city centre, out through Daleside Road, and as far as Vale Road in Colwick whilst the Western cycle corridor runs from the city along Castle Boulevard, over Abbey Bridge, connecting to University Boulevard via City Road, taking the route to the city boundary at the Broadgate roundabout.
The Northern cycle corridor exits the city centre via North Sherwood Street, goes up Mansfield Road and follows Hucknall Road, picking up the National Cycle network just north of Bulwell with the Southern corridor extending from Nottingham Station, along Queen’s Walk to Nottingham Trent University’s Clifton Campus, mainly following the cycle routes already set down along the NET tram route to Clifton.
The scheme’s aims include a recorded increase in bike use, less commuting by car, associated health benefits and reductions in traffic pollution levels; to aid the overall economic growth of Nottingham.
