East Riding of Yorkshire Council is joining forces with partners across Europe in a project that aims to reduce CO2 emissions and increase bicycle use by 10 per cent within targeted groups.
The council is hosting the first Bicycles and Intelligent Transport Systems (BITS) Cycling Academy in Beverley on Thursday 26 September, with the aim of bringing together anyone interested in smart cycling and the use of intelligent transport systems to increase the uptake and safety of cycling.
Students and employers from across Yorkshire are set to benefit from a significant investment in the digital infrastructure at Bishop Burton College.
The college has recently completed a £650,000 project to upgrade its ICT systems, which will provide the platform to train current and future generations of highly skilled workers and provide a valuable contribution to the agriculture sector, in particular.
The refurbishment of the Tone Zone gym at East Riding Leisure Beverley is now open and means the facility can offer brand new, state of the art equipment.
Following the work, equipment now includes the replacement of all the existing cardiovascular and resistance equipment with the latest Matrix models, featuring internet capability; fit touch technology; and updated virtual active videos.
Hull Trains has revealed its new trains are on schedule to arrive in the UK later this year – which will see them become one of the “best rail operating companies in the UK.”
It comes as the firm revealed the fifth and final train in the new £60m fleet arrived in Europe for internal fitting ahead of schedule this week – having been built at Hitachi Rail’s manufacturing plant in Kasado, Japan. When they are launched, Hull Trains will have the youngest entire fleet in the country.
