Western Cycle corridor - phase two consultation

On Monday the 19th October construction on the first phase of the Western Cycle Corridor began with the first steps towards our Cycle Super highway.

Having reviewed the feedback from the consultation we are re-opening consultation for phase two of the corridor between Dunkirk Roundabout and Lenton Abbey to give residents the chance to have their say on the more detailed plans.

Informational leaflets will be delivered to affected residents with details of how to have your say and consultation events.

Keep an eye out on our Cycle City website for more information on the consultation.

citycard cycles

Citycard Cycles 1 for 24 hours!

For an entire year we have provided our Citycard Cycles hire scheme to Nottingham residents and visitors absolutely free. During this time we have had over 5,800 hires and over 90,000 hire hours recorded.

On the 9th November the free period came to an end and charging was reintroduced at 1 for 24 hours.

This will mean that individuals will have to activate their mobile phone and add credit to their account via a debit/credit card prior to booking.
