Cycle ways need more funding no question, the current solutions are token and not fit for purpose. Could clip attachments be considered for current bridges? A new bridge would be nice but it will require a lot of supporting infrastructure. If you research says you need a new bridge, then perhaps instead of building one perhaps you could build multiples? As the non recurring cost remains the same..... Whatever solution is selected, go for it! The current access across the river is poor for cyclists and pedestrians
Is there a cheaper way of achieving this? 3 million for a roundabout seems excessive. Dumping a rock in the middle would ensure traffic flows around it. Jokes aside, perhaps the contracts need to be more competitively priced
Invest in alternative forms of transport to the car and you will reduce reliance on road infrastructure. It may even save money
We’re proposing to balance our books in 2024/25 and reset our debt-to-revenue ratio to 300% for 2021/22 then decreasing by 5% each year until 2025/26 where we will remain at 280% from 2026/27 to 2030/31. Rates are proposed to increase by an average of 8.9% in 2021/22 and 4.9% annually until 2030/31.
We have lots of other projects included in our Long-Term Plan. We want to hear you views on any of them.
