Sustrans: Supporting Cycling in Hedge End

But not all the way to Botley 
With approval by Hampshire County Council confirmed in the last week, work is likely to start "this year" on phase 1 of the long-awaited cycle link from Hedge End to Botley.  There is no outlook for when phase 2 will be completed so cyclists will still have to wait for a safe route all the way between the two centres.

With most of the funding provided back in March by cycling charity Sustrans and the Department of Transport, the wheels of local bureaucracy have turned as slowly as an olympic velodrome cyclist from a standing start.

A new, shiny cycle way will provide plenty of photo opportunities for candidates in next year's county elections, so what's the betting both Lib Dems and Conservatives take the credit?

A larger version of the map and other supporting documents are available on the Hampshire County Council web site.
