The Trinity Road “quietway” could become a permanent fixture as part of an investment from the Department for Transport to Bucks Councils.

A six-month ‘active travel’ trial scheme was rolled out across the county, costing £514,000, in a bid to encourage walking and cycling.

The schemes aimed to encourage residents to undertake more local journeys by foot and by bike, particularly during the pandemic, and could lead to longer-term benefits including reduced congestion, improved air quality, improved community cohesion and better public health.

A statement on the council website reads: “We are therefore proposing to introduce a permanent restriction of motor vehicle use on Trinity Road, in line with the current trial scheme.

“The restrictions are proposed to be retained to create a quieter street for everyone, encouraging cycling and walking whilst still maintaining vehicular access for local residents and businesses.”
