Residents have until one minute to midnight on Friday to have their voices heard on the new cycle lanes installed around Wiltshire.

In November, Wiltshire Council received £681,000 from the Department for Transport under its Active Travel Fund scheme.

The grant was awarded to “progress cycling schemes in the county” and make it easier for cyclists and pedestrians to travel around Wiltshire without driving.

The council had originally bid for £908,000 for the second set of grants and began consultation into a new set of proposals, as well as the first crop of temporary schemes.

Part one of the survey invites people to give their opinions on the cycling schemes already in place across the county.

These were schemes paid for by the first grants from the DfT and include cycle paths on:

  • A420 Bristol Road in Chippenham
  • Monkton Hill in Chippenham
  • Brown Street and Exeter Street in Salisbury
  • A361 Hilperton Road in Trowbridge
  • B3108 between Winsley and Bradford on Avon

Part two asks for residents’ views on new schemes proposed under the second wave of grants under the Emergency Active Travel Fund.

These new schemes include:

  • Making the cycle lane on the A420 in Chippenham permanent and extending the scheme
  • Lowden Hill in Chippenham
  • Downton Road in Salisbury
  • Hilperton to Melksham via Semington
  • Easton Lane cycle link between Chippenham and Corsham
