New bicycle stands erected as part of cycle route improvements
August 24, 2021
Four new cycle parking points have been erected in Cramlington as part of the ongoing programme to improve facilities for local cyclists.
This is in addition to the ‘tubemap’ signs, crossing improvements and information boards installed by Northumberland County Council to encourage more people to make use of the 12-miles of routes on the traffic-free network which criss-crosses Cramlington.
There are now signed routes across 100 locations, 158 signage bollards, 11 information boards and 12 new dropped kerbs installed to make crossing roads easier and safer.
The new cycle stands are located at Glenluce Drive shops, the Brockwell Centre, at the Clifton Road Shops and at Dewley Court Shops (pictured).
The “tubemap”, similar to the London Underground plan, outlines eight routes that radiate from the town centre, that are waymarked on the ground with new signs.
Town Mayor of Cramlington Loraine De Simone said: “Cramlington is one of the best towns in the country for cyclists. It is an activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family and these new cycle stands are a very welcome addition to our cycling network.”
