Torbay Council has submitted a bid for national funding from Active Travel England to construct a new crossing at Shiphay Lane, a ramp to provide an alternative to stepped access on Rainbow Drive and funds for developing further designs for the wider network.
The project forms a key part of Torbay’s Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP). These improvements will make it easier for people to walk, wheel, cycle and improve accessibility in Torbay.
A decision on the bid from Active Travel England is expected to be announced by the end of March.
The bid to deliver a new crossing at Shiphay Lane was successful.
Goal TB. Using Active, Shared and Public Transport is Safe, Efficient and Affordable.
