Towns Fund Business Cases - KEY/9MAY2022/02

The purpose of this report is to set out the necessary steps to secure funding, allocated to Peterborough City Council through the 2021 Peterborough Town Deal, in relation to three of the Town Deal projects.  

·         Submission of the business cases and subsequent funding provides £6.0m investment which will deliver a pedestrian bridge over the River Nene, providing a walking and cycling route between the Embankment and Fletton Quays and also support the ambition of opening up the waterfront for regeneration. 

·         Upgrade Lincoln Road through public realm improvements to the streetscape, through improving pedestrian experiences, improving vitality and vibrancy of businesses and encouraging social interaction. This will be achieved through various improvements including resurfacing of footway and frontages within the curtilage of businesses with block paving, new pedestrian crossings, soft landscaping and street furniture. 

·         Improve accessibility and connectivity between Peterborough Station and the city centre through the provision of a ramp at the Bus Station and a number of other walking and cycling improvements.
