Eastern Cycle Route (LSTF) (Local Sustainable Transport Fund) project - Funding Approval


To consider the report of Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport in association with the Cabinet Member for Resources, seeking approval for relevant funding approvals detailed below, to progress the Eastern Cycle Route Project.


The Project will provide a direct cycle route from the  East of the City to the City Centre and Central Station.  The route will encourage more cyclists and and include safer facilities that would benefit those with less confidence, thus creating the ability to travel in and out of the City sustainably.


LSTF funding to the value of £888,000 was added to the E&T Capital Programme in November 2012 to cover a 3-year period 2012-2015. 


The project requires 100% of match funding and approval is requested  for a further £888,000 to be added to the Capital Programme to be met from site specific Section 106 contributions, the Sustrans (DfT) Cycle Safety Fund and the 2014/15 LTP Integrated Transport allocation.


Approval is sought for the total capital expenditure for the project, which is estimated at £1.776 m.
