Local share of £15 million for cycle-rail and Sustrans projects

Road.cc reports that 68 projects in England will be sharing Department for Transport funding.  From what I can see in the full list, locally we should see:

  • £140,700 to London Midland to revamp or remove old cycle parking spaces and install new high quality spaces to increase, sometimes doubling, cycle capacity at 13 rail stations including Northampton and Long Buckby
  • £350,000 to Northamptonshire County Council to improve the Brampton Valley Way by resurfacing and dealing with flooding and access problems so that it becomes an all-weather all-year resource.

Let’s hope the latter improvements deal with the quagmire under the railway line just north of King’s Heath!
