New cycle route opened

Southampton City Council has opened SCN1 (Southampton Cycle Network Route 1) – a new cycle route from Totton to Southampton City Centre.


SCN1 is the first route to open on the Southampton Cycle Network, the cornerstone of a ten year strategy to transform the cycling experience in the city.


Launched in 2017, the strategy outlines plans which respond to calls for more cycleways, safer roads, less traffic and better awareness to address common barriers to cycling. Two years later, Southampton City Council has made significant progress across the network, accelerated by a series of successful funding bids to central Government. This has seen an investment of £2.4m in new cycleways with plans for a further £8.3m for projects completing during 2019 alone.


A range of improvements include new and extended segregated cycleways on Second Avenue as well as resurfacing to the shared use path along Millbrook Road West. A segregated cycleway is now in place on First Avenue, providing access to the western docks. Millbrook Road East has also received a number of traffic calming measures as part of a ‘quietways’ scheme to make cycling a safer and more attractive option.
