Cycling unite: vote £50m for Sustrans

Voting starts today in the lottery beauty contest
Publish date:

The first opportunity to help secure £50m for walking and cycling routes starts at 9am today.

By going to and voting for Sustrans' Connect2 everyone can help bring new local travel routes to the doorstep making it easier for people to walk and cycle for everyday journeys, said Sustrans.

Internet voting closes at midday on Monday December 10th.

79 communities around the UK would benefit from the sustainable transport charity winning the £50m grant in the Big Lottery Fund's: The People's £50 Million contest in December. Connect2 would build bridges, foot and cycle paths, and even reinstate a ferry, giving people easier and healthier access to their schools, workplaces, shops, parks and countryside. Connect2 is competing against three non-national organisations, with the winner being decided by public vote.

An ITV1 programme championing the Sustrans bid airs on December 4th.
