Chesterfield Cycle Campaign promotes cycle use in Chesterfield for both leisure and utility journeys. By campaigning for a comprehensive network, we aim to improve conditions for cyclists so that cycling becomes a safer and more attractive option than car travel for local journeys.
The two spans of the new Hollis Lane bridge on the station link route were lifted into place last night. The parapets either side will arrive in a couple of weeks or so which will complete the structure.
Just had the following message from Derbyshire County Council;
The bridge over Hollis Lane is in two halves and was going to be lifted in over two weekends, however I have just been informed that they are both going to be lifted into place this Saturday 25th June. Hollis Lane will be closed from 9pm and rail possession is from 1am Sunday morning if anyone fancies being a night owl. The majority of work is complete and the contractor is just waiting for delivery of the parapet railings.
Our June meeting will take place on Tuesday 14th June at 7.30pm in Chesterfield Community Centre.
We have had news that the station link is unlikely to open until the end of July now.
Our May Campaign meeting will be on Tuesday 10th, 7.30pm at Chesterfield Community Centre near the coach station accessed off South Place.
This will be our final draft of the new Chesterfield Cycle Map.
Our Campaign will be having a stall in New Square on May 2nd. Do pop in and say hello to members of the committee.
Some members usually cycle very slowly at the back of the march which leaves the town hall at 11.00am, do join in if you wish!
Our April meeting will take place on Tuesday 12th April at 7.30pm in the Chesterfield Community Centre.
Spotted at the Inkerman Park today - bicycle with sidecar!
Milestone today for the railway station link, the first new bridge was lowered into place next to the Ibis hotel.
It doesn't look as if we will have the draft map back for our March meeting but we will have our usual monthly meeting on Tuesday March 8th at 7.30pm in Chesterfield Community Centre.
