Objectives

This project aims to:

  • improve connectivity in Wendover and therefore help promote sustainable travel.
  • encourage cycling for shorter journeys in Wendover through developing the cycling network.

 

Proposed cycleway improvements

With the available budget, we are proposing 3 cycleway improvements within Wendover.

The proposals are:

  • railway station access – linking the existing Amber Way cycleway along Aylesbury Road to the Railway Station
  • Amber Way improvements on Aylesbury Road between Halton Lane and Castle Park Road
  • school access – extending the existing Amber Way cycleway along Aylesbury Road towards the schools along Wharf Road

This proposal links the existing Amber Way cycleway on Aylesbury Road with Wendover Railway Station via Lionel Avenue, Dobbins Lane and Coombe Avenue. It largely consists of on-carriageway markings to ensure that motorists are clear that cyclists will be on the carriageway.

From Aylesbury Road, cyclists will use the current informal crossing to travel towards Lionel Avenue. Along Lionel Avenue, there will be cycleway markings on the carriageway, along with route signage.

Cyclists will utilise the existing cut through linking to Dobbins Lane, where similar to the proposed design along Lionel Avenue, there will be on-carriageway cycle markings.

To reach the Railway Station, cyclists will travel up Coombe Avenue and then be required to dismount at the end road and push their bicycle up the steps using a cycle ramp. From the back of the Car Park people will cycle through the Railway Station car park to reach the Station.

This proposal creates a shared use cycleway on the northern footway along Aylesbury Road between Halton Lane and Castle Park Road, preventing cyclists from having to cross the road onto the southern side, providing a more consistent, attractive and safer route. The shared used footway / cycleway will be widened to approximately 2.5m.

Cycleway crossings will be constructed at the junctions of Halton Lane, Grenville Avenue and Castle Park Road.

This proposal extends the Amber Way cycleway from Victory Road to link to the schools along Wharf Road.

The footway between Victory Road and Wharf Road will be upgraded to a shared use footway / cycleway. The path will be widened near the Health Centre to become approximately 2.5m wide.

At the Wharf Road junction, cyclists will then have to re-join the carriageway. There will be cycleway markings on the carriageway, along with route signage to let road users know that cyclists are likely to be using Wharf Road.
