What are we doing now?

Assessing options

We have developed the short listed options from Stage 1 and assessed how each one performed against:

  • the economic benefit
  • the environment (benefits and impact)
  • connecting residents to jobs and education (integration)
  • supporting improvements to public transport (accessibility)
  • improving safety for all road users
  • how the walking, cycling and wheeling path fits with existing roads and paths

We assessed each option to see:

  • how easy they are to build
  • are they affordable
  • are they value for money

For each option, we considered these important issues:

  • engineering
  • the environment
  • traffic

It was clear from early in the process, that Options A and C should not be taken forward to the final assessment.

We then further developed the Option B route and considered four variations of different lengths to take forward. 

Watch the video for more information on how we assessed the options.
