An MP has welcomed Government funding for a new cycling scheme connecting Colwick and Netherfield.

Gedling MP Tom Randall has welcomed plans to create a new cycle track along the A612 Colwick Loop Road (Private Road 1) to the A6211 in Netherfield.

The cash has come from the Government’s £200 million Active Travel Fund for 134 schemes marks the ‘golden age’ of cycling and walking – which the say will enable communities across the country to get out on their bikes and enjoy cheaper, cleaner and greener travel across their area. 

Gedling MP, Tom Randall said: “As we focus on greener and cheaper travel to slash emissions and address the cost of living, it is vital that Gedling’s communities are provided with the infrastructure they need to enjoy active travel.

“That is why I am delighted a new cycle track along the A612 Colwick Loop Road (from Private Road 1) to the A6211 in Netherfield is part of the Conservative Government’s £4,630,000 commitment to improve the quality, safety and accessibility of walking and cycling routes across Nottinghamshire.

“Providing this cycling infrastructure will better connect Colwick residents to nearby jobs at Netherfield retail park and boost active, green and cheaper travel for all to enjoy. This not only cleans our air but increases the choice of travel and a dedicated cycle track makes it easier and safer for people to keep active.”

Transport minister Trudy Harrison said: “This multi-million-pound investment will ensure people right across the country can access cheap, healthy and zero-emission travel.  

“Active Travel England will be working hard to create a new golden age of walking and cycling, enabling everyone to reap the benefits of a more active lifestyle, creating streets where children can play, and making nicer places to live.”

  1. A total waist of money. Money should be spent increasing transport links in Arnold. Better shops and better attractions. More tourists. Lets hire our bikes in the town centre and build a very good track from the park to our beautiful town centre. Makes more sense. Its our capital and our London so less money to Netherfield please MP and spend where needed

  2. Great to see some money injected in to Netherfield. More often than not, it’s over looked for more favourable areas.
