Cycle routes in Norwich are set for improvements over the next two years following Norwich City Council's successful bid for funding.

The Cycle City Ambition grant of £3.7m from the Department for Transport was applied for in partnership with Norfolk County Council. It will help pay for a £5.5m programme of projects to improve cycling infrastructure across Norwich.

At the centre of the work is a plan to improve the eight-mile 'pink pedalway', which crosses the city centre from the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital/Norwich Research Park area to Heartsease.

Norwich was invited by the DfT to apply for the funding as one of the 28 cities that are part of the City Deals process.
