The government has announced sixteen ‘Fast Track’ coastal projects, worth £6m, starting this year including  £98k for Cycle Friendly Deal, Kent.

The project will create new tourism aimed at families and occasional cyclists to make Deal a cycle friendly town.


Funding will support the development of family friendly cycle routes, improved signage and the creation of new cycle maps and guides, plus a new e-bike share scheme.

Dover and Deal MP Charlie Elphicke said: “I’ve been making the case to the Government for a fairer share of funding for our corner of Kent.

“This is a welcome decision by the Department and a real boost for Deal.”
