EQUANS completes cycle track as part of Wythenshawe Park revamp

EQUANS has recently completed work on a state-of-the-art cycling track, as part of investment into Wythenshawe Park. The open space, located in south Manchester, has seen a transformation which includes a learn-to-ride area, skills zone, family woodland trails and more.

The work has been carried out on behalf of Manchester City Council, who received a total of £1.5m funding through the Places to Ride fund. The P2R fund is delivered through a partnership between British Cycling, Sport England and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

Wythenshawe Park is at the heart of the Wythenshawe community and is a flagship park covering all the wards of Wythenshawe. It is the largest and most diverse open green space in the south of the city, achieving Green Flag status for numerous years.

EQUANS’ Education and Public Buildings team in the North West delivered the work, in partnership with Bike Track. EQUANS has a large footprint across Manchester and the north west of England, with low-carbon new build, refurbishment and public buildings work across the region.

Alyson Seddon, Head of Education and Public Buildings at EQUANS, said: “This is a really impressive scheme, which EQUANS is delighted to be involved in on behalf of Manchester City Council and the wider Wythenshawe community. Wythenshawe Park is often the first significant experience of landscape, nature, history and cultural events for people growing up and living in the area, so we’re honoured to have played a part in the park’s future.”

Councillor John Hacking, Manchester City Council’s Executive Member for Skills, Employment and Leisure, said:  “I’m pleased that Wythenshawe Cycle Hub has been completed and is ready for residents to enjoy. This is a great investment on behalf of Manchester City Council and Sport England, through the Places to Ride programme.  I’d like to thank British Cycling, Sport England and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport for their investment and all those at EQUANS for their hard work on this project.

“The council are dedicated to encouraging more cycling in and around Manchester and Wythenshawe Cycling Hub is a great way to encourage residents to hop on their bikes and improve their confidence cycling in a safe, traffic free environment. The completion of the cycle hub will benefit residents all over Manchester of all ages. I’d encourage all residents to get on their bikes and head down!”
