Did you vote in the people’s 50 million? Don’t worry if you didn’t, it’s too late now. Sustrans won which is great. I voted even though I’m rather sceptical about these things (can’t think why!).
Sustrans was up against a project in Sherwood, an extension to the Eden project and a Black Country regeneration project – all very worthy initiatives – but it was a national project concerned with sustainable transport that won.
So, we’ll get a few more walkways and cycleways and some bridges which will make walking and cycling places possible again and enable people to cross ‘car-only’ routes once more. But is that all? Or is this a national vote in favour of sustainable transport – I’d love to think so.
