Possible new Thames pedestrian and cycle bridge
Written by: drobs
Reading Borough Council has lodged a £24.2 million bid for Government money to create a series of ‘green’ transport initiatives including a new pedestrian and cycle bridge across the Thames, expanded Park and Ride facilities in neighbouring boroughs and a bike hire scheme for Reading.
Tony Page, Reading’s Lead Councillor for Planning and Transport, said: “Today’s’ bid is the culmination of a great deal of work and, if successful, it will be tremendous news, not only for us in Reading but for the wider region. We are confident that, working closely with neighbouring authorities and health partners, we have put together a strong case for the DfT to consider.”
