Sustrans Wins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by chdot on December 12, 2007

So that’s £50m for new links and improvements to the National Cycle Network adding significant facilities for walking and cycling, (CE.i story). As someone who works for Sustrans in Edinburgh says: “We just heard we won Connect2 so at least the public feels walking and cycling projects are important! We won 42% of the total vote which is pretty significant.” 

The Connect2 site says: “We start work on delivering Connect2 in January 2008. Our local authority partners are poised ready to go, and will be adding matched funding from their own transport and other budgets to the £50 million from the Big Lottery Fund. This is a five year project, and in total we have already identified nearly £100 million of local authority funding to support Connect2, and we are working hard to bring even more funding to the project so that we can ensure as many people as possible benefit from Connect2.”
