We need to encourage more people to cycle and walk. Encouraging children to cycle to school is good for their health and independence. The cycle path from the N11, through Charlesland, to the station is good. I want to develop a series of Green routes for walking and cycling and hope to have the funds to study how to do this in 2009. Following the design stage these will be implemented over time. The cycle rack at the station in always full and I have asked for more to be provided. In 2009 the Council will provide more spaces if we get the money to provide a better transport interchange here. I asked the Council to remove unused bikes that were clogging it up and some have now been removed.
