Cash boost for cycling in the Forest
4:00pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
A MULTI-MILLION-POUND drive to promote cycling in cities and national parks has been announced by the Prime Minister – including the New Forest.
The initiative includes plans to make roads safer for those on two wheels and means a number of English cities will get Government money for cycling schemes.
A total of £7m will be divided between Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford and Norwich.
Also, the New Forest, Peak District, South Downs and Dartmoor areas will each share a slice of £17m funding for national parks. In the New Forest, which is expected to get a £5.7m share, a new cycling centre is to be created in Brockenhurst.
