Geoffrey Osborne has won a deal to work on 17 cycle paths in the East of England.

The contractor will start in the new year building or upgrading the bike-friendly routes on roads including the A5, A12, A120 and A47.

The £2M contract is part of a £100M investment in making England’s roads more attractive to cyclists.

Cycling Minister Robert Goodwill said: “These new routes will transform cycling journeys along busy routes in the East of England.

”The safe and accessible cycle paths and crossing points are an important step in encouraging more people to use their bicycles to get around the region for work, visiting family and friends or for exercise.”

Highways England project manager Kelly Millburn added: “We are committed to making cycling on or over our network safer and easier. By building these cycle improvement schemes across the East of England, we will provide safer journeys for cyclists on our busy roads, focusing on keeping them well separated from motorised traffic and providing safe crossing points.”
