Scheme 1: Penwortham to Preston Cycle Superhighway
We are holding a public engagement until 14 December 21 to get your views on a proposal to create a new cycle and walking friendly junction on Broadgate, Preston. This is part of a scheme which will improve facilities for those travelling the mile between the Cop Lane junction and Preston city centre - find out more.

There will be a range of targeted promotion to promote healthier travel choices delivered alongside the capital investment in the cycle superhighway and the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. This holistic approach will aim to ensure that the best possible outcomes are achieved, by facilitating local people to use the new infrastructure and removing barriers to active travel.
There will also be a robust monitoring and evaluation programme, which will capture the outputs and outcomes of the completed delivery programme and provide an opportunity to learn lessons to help improve our scheme development and delivery in the future.
