CYCLISTS have welcomed plans to make Warwickshire more cycle-friendly.
Warwickshire County Council has agreed to draw up a strategic costed three year cycling plan following a joint Green-Lib-Dem motion calling for improvements to help encourage more people to cycle.
Green Party councillor Jonathan Chilvers said: “I’m delighted that our joint motion has been passed.
“For years the council has taken a slapdash seat-of-your-pants approach to cycling infrastructure. Today’s successful motion means building safe off road cycle routes will now be taken seriously.
“Safe and enjoyable cycle routes for short journeys to school and work improve our day-day lives and will reduce congestion for when we do need to use our cars.”
