Active travel, people cycling and walking image

Plans to invest £5.4 million in local transport and active travel projects in Stoke has got the go ahead.

The city council’s local transport and active travel plan includes 26 projects to improve roads, footpaths and bridges, and includes traffic calming measures including installing pedestrian crossings and tackling cut throughs used by drivers which will be placed outside six schools.

Welcoming the plan, Cllr Finlay Gordon-McCusker said: ‘There are a number of really good schemes here to make the network more efficient and safer. Things like repairing bridges and making sure they’re maintained properly.

‘This includes the bridge that connects Dividy Road to Eaton Park, without which people wouldn’t be able to get in or out of Eaton Park. So it’s really important that all this work goes ahead.’
