Aylesbury Cycle Path To Become More Useful
10:39am 16th February 2010
Work to extend one of Aylesbury's cycle paths has started, the Jetway goes from town to the Hospital but will now go further so it includes Stoke Mandeville Combined School.
There's also going to be temporary traffic lights on lower road as a new zebra crossing is installed
With the introduction of this new route there will be now over twenty miles of cycle network in Aylesbury.
A Cycle Aylesbury Spokesman said "From Stoke Mandeville Hospital to the town centre the Jet Way already provides a continuous route along quiet roads and uses cycle lanes along busier trafficked roads. The new off-road shared path will run from Stoke Mandeville Hospital alongside the B4443 Lower Road to the roundabout in Stoke Mandeville at its junction with the B4010 Risborough Road. A new zebra crossing being installed across Lower Road to provide safer access for pupils attending Stoke Mandeville Combined School.
Work to the Jet Way extension starts on Monday 15th February 2010 and will take six weeks to complete.
Works will start during the half term school holiday to minimise traffic delays and the use of traffic lights will be restricted to off peak times between 0900 and 1600 to minimise delays.
The Cycle Aylesbury Team has been working closely with Sustrans and Cycling England to raise the standard and number of routes in Aylesbury’s Gemstone Cycle Network. Funding for the new Jet Way route extension is being provided by Central Government via a grant from Cycling England."
