The Milton Road segregated cycleways petition

This article was published in 2015, in Newsletter 121.

In May a petition was launched for segregated cycle routes to be included on Milton Road under the City Deal alongside the bus priority proposals.

Robin Heydon’s article in Newsletter 118 ( provides a starting point for the discussion, which is continued in Oscar’s preceding article. The petition is not about any one specific proposal, but rather the principle of safe, direct cycle routes that anyone can use, separated from pedestrians and motor traffic.

The options to go out to consultation will be considered over the coming months, with a full public consultation due early next year. Please sign the petition to show support for high-quality cycling options to be included in the consultation.
