Background

We want to encourage cycling for shorter journeys around Wendover by developing the cycling network. So, we are proposing some cycleway improvements and have been working on early designs. We would like to hear your views on our plans for 3 separate cycleways.

Please read the following information about our proposals for Wendover Cycleways and complete the online feedback form at the bottom of this page. 

The proposals

Details of the 3 proposed cycleways are listed below. We will install road markings and signage along each route to guide cyclists and ensure all road users are aware of cyclists.

Railway station access

  • This route links the existing Amber Way cycleway on Aylesbury Road with Wendover Railway Station via Lionel Avenue, Dobbins Lane and Coombe Avenue
  • From Aylesbury Road, cyclists will use the existing informal crossing to travel towards Lionel Avenue then use the existing cut-through to Dobbins Lane
  • From Dobbins Lane they will cycle up Coombe Avenue to the railway station and will then need to dismount at the end of the road to climb the steps – we will put in place measures to ensure cycles can be easily pushed up the steps.
  • Cyclists will then cycle through the car park to access the station and existing cycle storage

Amber Way improvements

  • These improvements on Aylesbury Road will create a shared use cycleway on the northern footway between Halton Lane and Castle Park Road
  • This prevents cyclists from having to cross the road onto the southern side, providing a more consistent, attractive and safer route
  • The shared-use footway/cycleway will be widened to approximately 2.5 metres
  • Cycleway crossings will be constructed at the junctions of Halton Lane, Grenville Avenue and Castle Park Road

School access

  • This part of the route extends the Amber Way cycleway from Victory Road to link Amber Way 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 approximately 2.5 metres
  • At the Wharf Road junction, cyclists will have to re-join the road
