Have your say over cycling and walking route plans

People from across the Tees Valley are being asked to give their views on plans to boost cycling and walking routes in Middlesbrough and Darlington.

As part of the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority’s plans to improve connectivity in these cleaner and sustainable methods of travel, a public consultation has been launched over the second phases of two key projects supported by £3.7million of funding.

Phase 1 of Middlesbrough’s Linthorpe Road and Darlington’s A68 Woodland Road schemes are currently in delivery and are due to be complete later this year. Middlesbrough’s project will see Borough Road connected to Ayresome Street and Darlington’s will link walking and cycling infrastructure from Darlington Memorial Hospital to Darlington town centre.

Feedback is now being sought on Phase 2 of the works. In Darlington, this would extend the route from the Memorial Hospital to Deneside Road and, in Middlesbrough, from Ayresome Street to Devonshire/Cumberland Road.

Both projects aim to fill gaps and create further improvements through protected spaces for cyclists on roads, improved road crossings for both cyclists and pedestrians and quieter back streets. They are part of wider plans to develop a high-quality, quick, affordable, reliable, low-carbon and safe transport network for people and freight within, to and from the Tees Valley.

The consultation is live now at teesvalley-ca.gov.uk/consultations and will close at 23:59 on Friday, 11 February.
