Lydney Cycling Improvements


The Lydney Cycleway improvement scheme was completed in spring 2020 and has improved access and increased connectivity by creating a pleasant, safe and accessible network of pathways around Lydney linking together Aylburton, Lydney Town Centre, the Railway Station, Dean Academy, and residential developments.

The scheme was developed with the aim of promoting cycle usage and reducing car journeys within Lydney.  The scheme has allowed the construction of 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.

Work is in progress to undertake scheme evaluation to establish the active travel benefits the scheme has generated.    

The proposed links have been chosen to remove barriers to cycling and encourage cycle usage, whilst maintaining a coherent and usable network for commuting, utility and leisure cyclists.

The entire £1,000,000 scheme was fully funded by the GFirst LEP Growth Deal which secured the design and delivery of the project.
