Stoke Students, this is for you.
Stoke-on-Trent were awarded £29 million by the Department for Transport though the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF)
This was in recognition of the council’s commitment to driving economic growth through investment in sustainable public transport. The funding sets out to transform how people move around the city, address current infrastructure challenges, and create better connections between the railway station, city centre and key employment sites across the area.
The three schemes on College Road, Boughey Road and Etruria Road form part of the TCF package promoting active travel across Stoke-on-Trent. They are designed to make it safer, quicker and easier to walk and cycle between key arrival and destination points in the city. They will also link into other schemes connecting to Shelton New Road, Newcastle and the city centre. A fourth scheme on Station Road will be consulted on at a later date.
Together, the schemes aim to increase the number of people cycling, improve safe and inclusive access for cycling, contribute to improved air quality, improve health and wellbeing of residents by supporting sustainable and active travel, and support the regeneration and economic growth of the city.
The consultation runs until Tuesday 19 July 2022.
You can find more information at www.stoke.gov.uk/tcf including details of the schemes, CGIs, maps, a flythrough video to illustrate the College Road scheme and a questionnaire. We would be very happy to meet with you to discuss the schemes in more detail if that would assist.
Stoke students, have your say!
