Sustrans’ Connect2 is one of four projects competing for the £50 million and Lorraine Kelly championed the Connect2 project on ITV1 the other night. Telephone voting begins today. All voting concludes at 12 noon on Monday 10 December.

Croydon Park Links will create a linking network of green paths and walkways across the Borough, joining up existing parks and open spaces to make it easier for pedestrians, cyclists and others to get around. The scheme will link central Croydon to the Wandle Trail and Wandle Park and will join South Norwood Country Park, Ashburton Park and Addiscombe Railway Park to the town centre.

If Sustrans wins the £50 million award Croydon Council will receive £550,000 of it to develop the Croydon Park Links.
