Portsmouth City Council plans to improve walking and cycling routes in key areas throughout Portsmouth. More people walking and cycling instead of driving means less traffic congestion, better air quality, and improved levels of fitness.
This scheme is part of the South East Hampshire Rapid Transit (SEHRT) programme, which aims to transform how people travel between Portsmouth and surrounding areas.
Portsmouth received just under £26 million from the government’s Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) to improve connectivity and increase productivity via better walking, cycling, and public transport links. These proposals are also an important part of Portsmouth’s Local Transport Plan, as well as the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP).
Part of this funding would be invested in various cycling and walking routes. Last year, we asked for people’s opinions on improving the cycle route along Goldsmith Avenue, developing a better walking route from Fratton to the city centre, and making the cycle route along Winston Churchill Avenue better.
This survey asked opinions on planned improvements to the cycle route from Eastern Road, through Dundas Lane to Moneyfields Avenue.
