Cornwall to receive £759,000 for new cycling and walking infrastructure

Truro and Falmouth Member of Parliament Cherilyn Mackrory has welcomed news today that Cornwall will be receiving a £759,000 share of the £250 million announced earlier this month. The council can use this money to fast-track plans for new walking and cycling lanes in Cornwall

Cherilyn said:

“I have long been a supporter of investing in new and existing cycling infrastructure such as we have seen come forward to link Perranporth and Newquay.

“Today’s announcement will allow people to continue to walk and cycle more as has been the trend during lockdown and will encourage more people to choose alternatives to public transport when they need to travel.”

“I look forward to seeing what Cornwall Council comes up with and hope the additional measures are moved forward quickly.”
