We want a Stapleford where everything’s within easy reach. We want to build a joined-up transport network for all, which enables more people to travel sustainably. We aim to do this through our cycle network project, which supports our ambitions to create a modal shift for connectivity into and around the town that:

  • Promotes positive health outcomes through walking and cycling
  • Cuts congestion and reduces carbon impact
  • Gives people the ability to meet most of their daily needs within a 20-minute walk from home, with safe cycling and local transport options

We will create 3km of new cycle paths around the town, a new cycle training track on the Ilkeston Road recreation ground – an open and accessible safe mini road network to practice cycling and build confidence, new signage/wayfinding around the town to improve awareness of cycle routes.
