Cycleways meeting at the Fat Pug 10th October 2018

Newsletter: It was agreed that the bar chart for the accounts, and the item on Cycling on pavements could be made clearer. Sorting this with the aim of getting the final draft, for distribution, by the end of this week.

Cycle Parking within Warwick District- will respond to the enquiry from WDC.

WDC Air Quality and Planning proposal by WDC – had sent out a copy of his 3rd draft to all, today, comments to him by the end of the week, please. A doctor  highlighted the weakness of the proposal in not recognising the danger of particulates outside of AQMAs, since high concentrations can occur in queuing traffic, and of particular concern is outside of schools.

Cycle Training – the Royal Leamington Spa Cycle Club have been given a grant by the North Leamington Community Forum to enable them to expand their cycle training for young people, drawn from Lillington and Sydenham.

Invite to Stephen Rumble and Margaret Smith to outline the provision of cycling along Europa Way and in Warwick Town, suggested after our AGM, to organise.

Cycleways’ brochure – There was broad agreement to up-grade the brochure along the lines of the new Leamington Society one. Will investigate costs. It was suggested that we make use of the £270 left over from the original cycle training fund.

Northumberland Road – The reason for the build outs from Beverly Rd is to provide drivers with clearer sight lines, not obstructed by the trees, exiting on to Northumberland Rd. Most cyclists seem happy with the arrangement.

Visit by Cllr Kristie Naomi had to be cancelled at the last minute due to a WDC requirement over running.

Cycle Forum meeting 9th Oct report

Hampton Street and route via the Racecourse stand,-WCC have extended the shared use path along Hampton St, but a new gate to access the Racecourse path, lighting and signing are still needed.

A46 access path to Warwick Parkway – WCCwill seek permission from Highways England and also see if they could pay for it out, apparently they have a cycle fund.

Cycle route signage – The Lib/Dem councillors plus Cllr Chilvers have all agreed to fund the signage out of their Delegated Funds, now waiting for WCC to agree on the routes.

Myton Rd extension from the Toucan X to the Banbury Rd. South side on road cycle lane, north side shared use path. National Grid representative thinks it is all good.



Following our letter 30th August to Cllr Gifford highlighting the potential of HS2 funding, WCC have agreed to apply to HS2 with an expression of interest. This would be to fund the section of route from Leamington to the Bericote roundabout, the junction just prior to the Chesford Bridge.
