Tang Hall Lane Cycle Improvements

We're proposing the installation of an alternative cycle connection between Tang Hall Lane and the Foss Islands Path.

The current junction that cyclists travelling along route 66 of the National Cyclist Network must use is considered dangerous and so the aim of this scheme is to improve the safety and convenience for cyclists using this route by providing an alternative way to connect between the road and the cycle path.

We want to hear your thoughts on the Tang Hall Lane Cycle Improvements and the proposed changes prior to formal decisions being made.

Consultation closes Monday 31 October, 5.00pm.
