Iver Sustainable Travel Scheme
|When:||To be confirmed|
|Summary:||The objective of the scheme is to provide a safe cycleway linking Iver Village to Iver station in order to reduce shorter distance car trips in Iver area.|
|Developer:||Buckinghamshire County Council|
In July 2014, the Local Enterprise Partnership was awarded capital funding from the Local Growth Fund for three key areas under the theme of ‘Access to Stations.’ The schemes aim to encourage sustainable travel to train stations which are due to face increased demand. Three key areas were identified as target locations due to having new or upgraded rail services/stations in the coming years. Encouraging a shift in behaviour towards sustainable travel modes prior to these improvements is essential to help minimise impact.
The government has published more information about the Local Growth Deal for Buckinghamshire.
Iver is one of three areas where we are improving travel to stations for people who would prefer not to use the car.
The main objective of the scheme is to minimise the impact of increased patronage at Iver Station (due to Crossrail) by improving multi-modal connectivity, through providing a cycleway between Iver Village and Iver station. This will help to ease Congestion growth as well as local parking issues (as there is currently no car park at the station)
