Cycle lanes and routes

Cycle lanes are dedicated lanes running alongside the road, designed to give cyclists a comfortable amount of space to travel safely, without getting in the way of other traffic. They're indicated clearly by road signs and markings.

There are many cycle lanes already in place across the borough and we consider the need for new ones as part of our overall plan for future road improvement schemes; wherever feasible, we'll introduce them as part of any new road developments.

We provide cycle routes to keep cyclists safe and to encourage more people to make their journey by bike. Routes can include cycle lanes on roads, or off-road tracks, which are often shared with pedestrians.

You can see national and regional cycle routes on the national cycle network map below.
