Cycle Basingstoke has joined with SWAG, South West Action Group, to oppose the traffic proposals for Manydown.  At the Manydown Overview Committee (thurs 30 Nov) Heather spoke up for cycling.  Councillor Izett chair of the Manydown executive Committee has offered her  an interview and she will also be meeting with officers on Tuesday 5th December before an important decision the next day.  CB hopes to see plans of the access roads and to demand that there are multiple access points for cycling, not just a shared pavement from Winklebury Way.  The other 2 access points are fast moving roundabouts.
Unless there are dutch style cycle routes which make cycling an easy and attractive the increased motor traffic flows will lead to gridlock.
