The Derby Cycling Group (a supporter of the Derwent Valley Cycleway) have published a “tube” map showing the quality of existing cycle routes in the Derby area.
The latest version of the map can be found at https://derbycyclinggroup.org.uk/blog/map/
Of particular interest to the Derwent Valley Cycleway is the obvious lack of adequate cycling provision in the north of the city and to Belper (red ratings). The Derwent Valley Cycleway will provide a high quality route linking Belper to Derby and change the ratings on the map to blue.
The Derwent Valley Trust has requested interested organisations to submit Expressions of Interest in bidding to deliver a study on the feasibility of the proposed Derwent Valley Cycleway. Subsequent to considering the companies expressing interest, a shortlist will be asked to tender for the work of delivering the study and a preferred organisation is expected to be selected by June 2017.
The document asking for Expressions of Interest can be found here.
After delivery of the study, we expect to have detailed costing information and plans which can be used to apply for the significant funds needed for the whole project.
