Over the next few months Sustrans will be working in the Ortons to help residents make informed choices about the way they travel.
Sustrans will be working in partnership with Travelchoice and Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT), as well as other local groups. The aim of the project is to encourage people to think about cycling, walking and using public transport more often.
Later in the year, a canvasser from Sustrans will be knocking on doors in the Ortons and asking to have a brief chat about how people in the household travel. They will then offer a range of tailored travel information: maps, timetables and other leaflets, including the community designed Local Travel Map!
Included in the information offered will be a map of the Ortons produced exclusively for the project highlighting cycling and walking routes, bus routes, and other useful information.
