GREEN travel schemes in Winchester, Basingstoke and Andover are set for a multi-million pound cash boost.

Improved facilities for cyclists, bus and train passengers are all central to Hampshire County Council’s successful bid for £4.1m of Government cash.

Among the initiatives to be developed is installation of electric vehicle charging points in off-street car parks, smartphone apps offering real time bus information and more cycle parking at schools and places of employment.

The cash comes from the Department of Transport’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund aimed at boosting the economy while reducing carbon emissions. Hampshire was one of 39 schemes to win funding in the first round of cash awards.

Councillor Mel Kendal, executive member for environment and transport said “This is excellent news for Hampshire. Promoting economic growth without compromising the quality of life of residents or the unique character of Hampshire is a top priority of the county council.

“This funding will enable us to establish sustainable transport projects and initiatives in a number of towns to ensure that Hampshire residents benefit from the government-funded capital investment.”

Hampshire’s bid included six towns. The others are Aldershot, Farnborough and Fleet.
