A petition urging the Government to consider an adjacent cycle track to the proposed HS2 railway project is now live on the e-petition's page.

Created by a Todd Curtis, cycle tourism and health are singled out as the key benefits. The submission reads:

"This petition needs to be signed by anyone who would like our Government to discuss the benefits of a cycle track running adjacent to the new HS2 rail link currently being proposed. There is a unique opportunity to add a cycle track that not only promotes a healthy lifestyle but would bring millions of pounds into local communities due to the added tourism."

It is suggested that the first phase of the project will near completion toward 2026, initially linking London and Birmingham, before a 'Y-shaped extension' adds links to Manchester and Leeds.
