More journeys made by bike

MORE people are joining in Liverpool’s cycling revolution.  The latest figures show that there was a 10.2% increase in the number of journeys made by bike within the City in 2015. And the annual progress report:- 'Liverpool Cycling Revolution – Cycling Strategy 2014 to 2026' to the Regeneration Housing and Sustainability Select Committee on 27 October also notes that a number of improvements have been made to Liverpool’s roads to benefit cyclists. These include new toucan crossing and pre-green cycle signals in the Project Jennifer scheme, an improved right turn on Hope Street, as part of the National Cycle Network, plus a new toucan crossing, at Netherfield Road South.  Further improvements for cyclists are planned in the business district, at Earle Road/Upper Parliament Street, along Regent Road and through the City Centre connectivity scheme, currently being consulted online. Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, cabinet member for regeneration and transport, said:- “We have set ambitious targets in our strategy to get more people cycling and the latest figures are very encouraging. A rise of more than 10% of journeys made by bike is a significant increase in the number of people travelling by bike. This is good, not only for their health, but for their pockets. And with more cycle friendly schemes being introduced in the highways network we can look forward to further increase in cycling in Liverpool.”
