Lydney Cycling Improvements


The Lydney Cycleway Improvement scheme will improve access and increase connectivity by creating a pleasant, safe and accessible network of pathways around Lydney linking together Aylburton, Lydney Town Centre, Railway Station, Dean Academy, and residential developments. The scheme has been developed with the aim of promoting cycle usage and reducing car journeys within Lydney.

Preliminary design has been completed on the entire cycleway network identified within The Lydney Neighbourhood Development Plan (Lydney Cycle and Walking Path Network), which enabled budget estimates to be produced. Whilst this work shows there is insufficient budget to deliver the full network at this stage, the proposed links have been chosen to remove barriers to cycling and encourage cycle usage whilst maintaining a coherent and useable network for commuting, utility and leisure cyclists.

The construction of the individual links will be carefully phased to minimise disruption during the works.

The estimated total cost of the entire scheme is £1,000,000 with funding coming from the GFirst LEP Growth Deal.



The Current Programme:

Alun Griffiths have been appointed by Gloucestershire County Council to construct the Lydney Cycle Improvement Scheme which will see us construct an integrated cycleway network composed of five individual links to improve connectivity for cyclists and pedestrians throughout Lydney and the surrounding areas by providing safe, easy to ride routes suitable for utility, leisure and commuting.

  • Construction Started - 7 October 2019
  • Construction End - Spring 2020
