Broadmarsh: Where are the Bike Paths? Take Action Now!

We’ve written about the plans for the major road changes planned for the Broadmarsh redevelopment and we need your help to make them better.

We need you to contact your local councillors and tell them that you – 

  • Strongly support removing private motor traffic from Canal Street
  • Want protected cycle paths included as part of this multi million pound scheme
  • Think that asking people to choose between riding on the road with lots of buses or on the pavement with lots of people walking is poor, out-of-date design
  • These plans won’t help the Council meet its own cycling targets
  • They need to design for cycling from the outset, because the implications of these decisions will last for years and years

Write your message in your own words

Talk about your own experiences of cycling in Nottingham. Think about your friends and family members who don’t cycle. Would this scheme make them any more likely to cycle?

You can also send them this link to Pedals’ comments here.

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership is part funding this scheme, your County and Borough Council Councillors are part of this organisation. Please write to your councillors to influence the scheme.

Who should I write to?

1) Click on the button above to enter your postcode and write to your own Borough and County councillors.

2) Ask them to contact their council’s D2N2 representative (the person from their council who sits on one of the D2N2 boards, list below for names). Tell them that the Broadmarsh scheme is being part funded by the D2N2 Local Growth Fund, and you want them to ensure that the scheme includes bike paths (they don’t at the moment).
