Redcar Town Centre Connectivity

Closing Date: 31st December 2024

Location: Redcar and Cleveland

Travel

Buses in Redcar centre are often delayed. Part of the problem is the rail crossing on West Dyke Road near the railway station, where buses are getting caught in traffic. We have recently committed to carrying out feasibility work to look in more detail for a long-term solution, but this is going to take time to develop and secure the funding to deliver. In the meantime, there is an opportunity to give buses priority in certain areas to reduce bus journey times and improve reliability. There is also an opportunity to improve walking, wheeling, and cycling journeys.

We want your ideas on how we can improve bus journey times, reduce delays, and bring improved infrastructure for walking, wheeling, and cycling in the area.

West Dyke Road Walking, Cycling and Wheeling Improvements

West Dyke Road is an important link into Redcar Town Centre. Existing walking, wheeling, and cycling routes are limited and sharing the road with traffic can feel unsafe for cyclists.

We want to improve walking, wheeling, and cycling by providing dedicated cycle lanes and upgraded and safer crossings.  You can see the proposals we have developed for West Dyke Road by clicking below.
