The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined
Authority have successfully been awarded a total of £3,896,59
Active Travel England as part of Active Travel Funding 4.
Peterborough has been allocated a total of £2,986,590 of
which £2,000,000 is for the construction of Thorpe Wood
Cycleway Phase 3.
1. Authorised the works order of up to £2,000,000 to Milestone Infrastructure Ltd to undertake construction of active travel improvements on Thorpe Wood, under the existing Peterborough Highways Term Services Contract.
2. Authorised the Director of Place & Economy to vary the works order value when required subject to; a. available budget being in place; b. the total sum of each variation not exceeding £100,000, c. the combined value of any authorised variation(s) do not exceed the total sum of £500,000. d. any variations are to be made in prior consultation with internal audit, finance and legal services.
This recommendation has been made to ensure that the Council is able to effectively deliver grant funding awarded to it by the CPCA for the active travel improvement scheme as well as to improve walking and cycling facilities.
Not to deliver the scheme: This has been discounted because the walking and cycling network to and from Thorpe Wood needs improving by making it better connected to routes that link to the wider network. Delivering the active travel improvements will provide residents and those working in the area with an alternative and more sustainable form of travel compared to the car. Successful delivery of the scheme will provide significant benefits to the wider travelling public, resulting in improvements to; journey times, accessibility and the environment.
There were none.
