Connect2 phone voting now open

Vote for Connect2 Credit: Sustrans

Sustrans' Connect2 bid to win £50 million Lottery funding to improve walking and cycling in 79 communities across the UK including 6 schemes in London is entering its final stages.  Online voting has been open for over a week, but from today there are an additional 2 ways that people can vote - using landlines and mobile phones.

Online voting is still available (follow the link on the right to vote online) but everyone can also vote by calling 0870 24 24 602*. All votes must be cast by midday on Monday 10 December and the winner will be announced on Wednesday.

* Voting is restricted to one vote per phone number, so switchboard numbers will only count once.  Even if hundreds of people vote from extensions through one switchboard, it will only count as one vote.

Typetalk users should dial 18001 before the number they want to vote for.  Maximum call charge 10p from a BT landline, calls from mobiles and other operators may be higher.  No profits are made by ITV or Big Lottery Fund from your calls.  Or vote online by following the link on the right. There is no charge for online entry but service provider charges may apply.

Lines are open now and close at midday Monday 10th December 2007.  Phone entries made before lines open or after the closing time will not be counted but may still be charged.  For terms and conditions please see the link on the right.
