Go Cycle shortlisted three times in CIHT awards

The Go Cycle programme has been shortlisted three times in this year’s Chartered Institute Highways & Transportation (CIHT) Awards nominations.

The programme, which is funded by Transport for London (TfL), has received three nods in the Healthy Transport Awards category.

The Kingston Station Go Cycle scheme has previously won the Wellbeing category at the New London Awards in 2017, and the Portsmouth Road Go Cycle project received a commendation in the Transport & Infrastructure category at the same awards.

Councillor Hilary Gander, portfolio holder with responsibility for Environment and Sustainable Transport, said: 

“It’s great to see the Go Cycle programme nominated in these awards and receiving yet more recognition.

“We continue to champion safe walking and cycling in our borough and are really pleased that so many people in Kingston are enjoying the routes. Many of our residents have been enjoying venturing out on their bikes during lockdown and these new routes, and others that are under construction, mean that cycling will remain a healthy option for them.

“Our commitments to enabling sustainable transport and improving air quality remain a central focus of our administration.”
