Work is now progressing on the preliminary design for the route. However, a short section of the route in the Houndmills area is due to be implemented in early 2024. Please view the plan for the location of this section together with a description and illustration of the proposed improvement.  
The Director of Universal Services formally approved the Project Appraisal on 22 August 2023 to upgrade a section of existing segregated cycleway/footpath. Please view the Decision Report.
A further update will be provided in due course, once the delivery details for these initial works are confirmed.

Scheme overview

The proposed cycle route, which will link the new Manydown residential development with Basingstoke Town Centre via Winklebury. This aims to provide a high quality cycle route that aims to maximise the number of people cycling to / from Manydown. The route will also provide a new cycling facility for existing residents and businesses along the route.  Please view the location plan.

Following the public and stakeholder engagement earlier this year, a report was taken to the Executive Lead Member for Transport and Environment Services Decision Day on the 3 October to progress further work on the scheme. The report outlines the preferred scheme design to be taken forward to further design work, including the latest proposals for the Ringway crossing. The scheme proposals were generally well received in the engagement. However, the preferred scheme takes account of comments made through the engagement.

Feedback Survey Results

The report summarises key findings from the feedback survey which took place from 13 February to 20 March 2022. This was an opportunity for local residents and businesses to provide their views on the proposed improvement scheme.  The information pack is still available to view.
