Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Further information about why we are investing in cycling and walking, what we want to deliver and how we have chosen how to prioritise investment is summarised within our Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan, which you can access by clicking here

The consultation period on the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan is now closed, however there are more details about each scheme available below.

Middlesbrough: Linthorpe Road

This corridor will link Middlesbrough town centre to Acklam via Linthorpe Road. Our analysis showed that there is high potential for cycling between the town centre and areas to the south including Teesside University, Linthorpe and Acklam. This corridor will link into sections of the Tees Valley cycling and walking network that have recently been delivered, which provide onward links to Thornaby and Stockton.

We have already consulted on Phase 1 delivery, which is set to commence in early 2022 and will link Borough Road to Ayresome Street.

Phase 2 delivery will take this further by extending the route from Ayresome Street to Devonshire Crescent. Both phases will deliver improvements through a mix of protected space for cycling on the highway, improved road crossings for cyclists and pedestrians and quieter back streets.

Darlington: Woodland Road 

This corridor will link Darlington town centre to Cockerton. Our analysis showed that there is significant potential for cycling between the town centre and areas to the north west including Darlington Memorial Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, Cockerton, West Park and Faverdale. Some sections of the corridor linking to West Park and Faverdale have recently been delivered. 

Phase 1 is currently being finalised for delivery and will link Darlington Memorial Hospital to Darlington town centre. Further information can be found here. 

Phase 2 is currently out for consultation and will extend the route from the Memorial Hospital to Cockerton. Both phases will deliver improvements through a mix of protected space for cycling on the highway, improved road crossings for cyclists and pedestrians and quieter back streets.
