-- A project which was initiated from 2008-2011 by cycle Cambridge seems to get big achievement in this inaugural Eurostar Ashden international award ceremony for sustainable travel category. It is new and a very prestigious award scheme.
Finally Cycle Cambridge is being listed in the top six finalists among the 120 hopefuls across the UK, France and Belgium. It is the Cycle Cambridge’s sincere and honest efforts during this phase which made it possible through £9millions investment in funding 14 new and improved cycle routes which resulted in 14% hike in cycling in Cambridge.
I am hugely delighted with this news and our project has achieved a major increase in cycling in and around Cambridge. This has made a remarkable reduction in the traffic congestion and helped in reducing pollution, saving money, transportation cost and thus in turn keeping life of people healthy, a statement made by the Mike Davies, the project manager at Cambridgeshire county council.
Nicholas Petrovic, Eurostar chief executive said the judges were very much impressed with council’s sustained efforts to promote cycling. The sustainable travel expert Ashden has allowed Eurostar to showcase some of the most exciting sustainable travel projects across UK, Belgium and France. These projects will inspire people to switch over to more sustainable modes of transport. The winners will be announced on May 30th at London on the annual Eurostar Ashden award ceremony with a share of £30000 up for grabs. At the same time on this grand event success stories of all six finalists will be celebrated.
