'Floating' Kingston cycle-path reaches shortlist for share of £100m cash
4:10pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
A ‘floating’ riverside cycle path and a ‘super skyway’ alongside Kingston Bridge are on a final shortlist for a share of £100m from the Mayor of London, writes Joshua Brown.
The 700m style route from Anglers Green to Thameside was nominated with seven other outer London boroughs.
Kingston Cycling Campaign’s Jon Fray said: "We back the bid. We hope the schemes are workable."
Councillor Simon James, Kingston Council’s lead member for transport, said the proposals now needed to be developed and fine-tuned.
Former BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan, the Mayor of London’s cycling commissioner will visit Kingston to see the proposals in person.
A final decision on which three or four councils will receive money is expected early next year.
