Consultation on seafront cycle lane extension

An exhibition on plans to extend Brighton & Hove’s popular seafront
cycle route is being held from January 8 to 10. Brighton & Hove
City Council is proposing to extend the route from Brighton Pier to the
Marina. The proposed route – filling a ‘missing link’ in the seafront
cycleway – will run for two kilometres along Madeira Drive.

Thu Jan 8 – 10am to 7pm

Fri Jan 9 – 10am to 4pm

Sat Jan 10 – 10am to 1pm

Staff from the council’s transport team will attend the event on Thursday January 8 from 10am to 7pm. 

Currently around 2,000 cyclists a day use the city’s existing seafront cycle route, which runs from Brighton Pier to Hove Lagoon to get to work, travel across the city, and for pleasure.

The new stretch will mean that in future they can carry on to and from the Marina and, from there, link in with the cycle route along the A259 between Roedean and Saltdean.

The project will be jointly funded by the city council and by Cycling England as a result of the city’s status as a Cycling Town. 

Following feedback from consultation, a final decision on the scheme will be made at a forthcoming Cabinet Member Meeting. If the scheme gets the go ahead, work will start this year.
