HCC Covid Travel Map

Cycle Winchester has responded to or actively engaged with all major consultations and planning discussions concerning Winchester and its environs. We also use our links with supporters to encourage them to engage as individuals with all cycle-related planning issues, wherever possible.

We have urged local authorities to seize the opportunity of Covid-19 Emergency Active Travel Funding to make improvements to cycling conditions in Winchester.

Cycle Winchester was invited to participate as a stakeholder in the Winchester Movement Strategy and the Workshop for Non-Motorised Users organised by Highways England with regard to the new Junction 9. We have engaged in campaigns regarding the new Sports and Leisure Park at Bar End, Station Approach, St Maurice Covert and Badger Farm Road.
