19 February & 4 March 2017
Discussion about Milton Road has been postponed from March to the June City Deal meeting agenda. This delay allows more time to canvas support for the ‘Do Optimum’ alternative (see Newsletter 130).
Camcycle, Milton Road Residents Association and Hurst Park Estate Residents Association have subsequently redesigned and printed literature and volunteers spent two positive afternoons out with the Camcycle stall bike raising awareness and sharing the proposals with passers-by. It was great to see so many people enthused by the ‘Do Optimum’ proposal’s segregation and protection of walking and cycling from motor traffic, and that the scheme would address their concerns over loss of trees and compulsory purchase orders. Many thanks to Matt Danish for organising these events.
There is still time to get involved in this campaign; please join our discussions at cyclescape 3024.
