Mini Holland

Filtered perm

Part of the Mayor’s Vision for Cycling, the investment will benefit all road users by funding substantial improvements to streets and better facilities for pedestrians.

CTmv1_rXIAE1Aaq.jpg-largeRichmond bid for mini Holland funding several years ago but was unsuccessful.  However schemes such as the segregated cycle path that is being consulted for London Road is being covered by a smaller pot of funding that Richmond received.  Also there is talk of an upgraded A316 cycle path from mini Holland funding.  We’ll keep you posted.

Kingston our neighbour was awarded 30 million pounds for its mini holland scheme.  It has since been branded ‘Go Development’ details are here.  Some quite impressive schemes I think you will agree.   We need to help our friends in Kingston ensure that it is executed well so we’ll keep you posted here of consultations or progress.  A successful mini holland will help us all when we visit Kingston and will also demonstrate to Richmond how cycling can be a great transport choice when the infrastructure is right.

First task is to take the Wheatfield Way Survey and ask for cycle tracks that are separate from motor traffic.

Rides for Explorers – 2nd April – Up the Wandle

Meet Richmond Little Green (by Richmond Theatre) 10.30. We head to Putney Bridge and then go along the Thames via Wandsworth Park to the mouth of the Wandle where we head upstream along the Wandle Trail. After a bit of busy road we get into King Georges Park and then is is mostly a mixture of parkland and quiet roads to Morden Hall Park for lunch.

We return, after a quick look at a gate from Merton Abbey transplanted to a quiet church in Merton Park,  via Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park .

A fairly short ride at 20 miles but lots to see.
