People invited to have their say on new cycleway

Posted on Wednesday 21st February 2024

People in Burton are being invited to have their say on proposals for a new cycleway along Borough Road in the town centre.

The scheme will provide a dedicated two-way cycle path, connecting King Edwards Place to Derby Street, along with upgrades to traffic lights and pedestrian crossings and resurfacing of footpaths.  It follows an earlier phase which included a new cycleway along Station Street and is part of wider plans to encourage more sustainable and active travel in the town. 

Phase 2 looks to continue the route from Burton railway station along Borough Road to the Town Hall, before using the residential streets which run parallel with the A5121 to reach the A511 Horninglow Road.

The scheme is now in its design stage and people can read more and have their say on Staffordshire County Council’s Borough Road webpage.  Work is expected to start in Summer 2024.

David Williams, cabinet member for highways and transport at Staffordshire County Council said:

“This is an important project that builds on the success of our earlier scheme on Station Street, which together will make it easier and safer for cyclists in the town.

“Cycling is a great way to move around over shorter journeys and when complete, the new cycleway will enable more people to consider cycling as a green travel option, which increases both people’s fitness and wellbeing.

“It’s important that we get the scheme right, which is why we are keen to hear what people think about the plans.  I’d encourage people to go and have a look at the proposals on our website and let us know what they think.”

The project is being delivered by Staffordshire County Council in partnership with East Staffordshire Borough Council.  The work will be carried out by the county council’s highways team and is being funded through the Burton Town Deal.
