Linthorpe Road phase 2 (Ayresome Street to Devonshire/Cumberland Road)

Proposals to improve Linthorpe Road for cyclists and pedestrians have been given funding from the Department for Transport and from TVCA's Transforming Cities Fund.

Phase 2 of the scheme will link Ayresome Street to Devonshire/Cumberland Road through a mix of protected space for cycling on the highway, and improved road crossings for cyclists and pedestrians.

This scheme will help to:

  • improve safety
  • create a more pedestrian-friendly route
  • support the local economy
  • improve accessibility to local retail, leisure, and services
  • reduce congestion, improving air quality and the local environment
  • improve the public realm
  • improve public health by reducing pollution
  • create an environment where people can travel actively
  • show a commitment to the government's aim of significantly increasing cycling levels

You can see artist's impressions of some of the plans at the bottom of this page.
