Birmingham Cycle Revolution-The Dingles & Colebank Proposed Cycleway
Consultation forms part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution project. Birmingham has successfully secured £17m from the Government specifically to make it easier and safer for new and experienced cyclists to travel to schools, shops, work or simply for fun. This forms one of the ‘green route’ sections through parks for leisure cyclists, families and commuters. Check the website at www.birmingham.gov.uk/bcr
This consultation is for the proposed footpath and cycleway route along the John Morris Walkway and through the Dingles. A reinforced grass material is proposed to be installed within the Dingles to maintain the natural character of the site but still providing a stable surface to walk and cycle upon.
Why We Are Consulting
To confirm the location route of the cycleway through the Dingles.
What Happens Next
Following consultation the route of the cycleway will be finalised with the hope to commence on site by July 2014 with completion by September 2014.
6 results were obtained from the consultation, all of which were responded to be the Landscape Architect involved with the project. The main concern highlighted was the type of material proposed for the surfacing, which has been explained has had to be used due to the status of the site. Since completing the works we have had overall positive feedback to the pathway.
