Lincoln Green walking and cycling links

We would like to know what you think about our plans to improve walking and cycling links in Lincoln Green area.

The Lincoln Green community is close to Leeds city centre but getting there on foot or by bike can be difficult. This scheme is aimed at improving walking and cycling opportunities for this community by using a transformational new approach to street design based on the “Mini Holland” concept. This method is about improving streets to make them safer and easier to use for walking and cycling and offer a more pleasant environment. All streets can still be accessed by vehicles, but the one way system will deter rat running and provide space for pedestrians, seating and greenery.


An example of what a 'Mini Holland' designed area could look like


This scheme will provide a safe and direct route from the Mabgate area of the city centre to St James’s Hospital, whilst also providing enhanced routes and links to other wider public transport offers. The proposals for this location are:

• To introduce a new, attractive style of street scene design

• To widen the pavements

• To enhance the environment by planting trees / shrubs

• To improve street lighting

• To introduce one way systems to control traffic movement

• Signalisation of Lincoln Green Road / Cherry Row and safe pedestrian / cycle crossing

The scheme will link with key public transport routes and strategic cycle corridors on Regent Street and also the Connecting Leeds improvement scheme currently being developed and consulted on for Beckett Street.

Next steps

We are asking for your feedback on the plans from Monday 30 September until Monday 28 October. This feedback will be used to update the plans. Subject to funding approval, the construction of this scheme is likely to take place in 2020.
