Platinum Way Cycleway Improvements - Stubble Hill

Closed 30 May 2024

Opened 9 May 2024


Buckinghamshire Highways are proposing to implement Double Yellow Lines (DYLs) at the junction between Stubble Hill, Mill Meadow, and Long Leys as part of the Platinum Way (formerly Emerald Way) Cycleway Improvements. The proposed restrictions are aimed to do the following:

  1. Enhanced Visibility: The parking restriction will improve visibility for those crossing the junction, and allowing cyclists and drivers to see each other more easily, as any vehicles would be discouraged from parking within this junction area.
  2. Safer Crossing: Pedestrians and cyclists will be better seen by drivers, reducing the risk of accidents.

The Platinum Way Cycleway Improvements is designed to be part of a broader initiative to enhance the Platinum Way Active Travel route between Aylesbury Town Centre and Aylesbury Vale Parkway station. The Platinum Way (formerly known as Emerald Way) spans 3 miles, connecting local schools, businesses, and community facilities. It encourages walking and cycling, contributes to better air quality, and helps alleviate congestion.
