March 2021 Update on Cycling Improvements

From Mike Thomas ….

Despite the gloom and doom about the pandemic, it really is an extremely exciting time with so many local developments in the local infrastructure, much of which I can see you have on the website.

Also worthy of mention are:

1  CANNON PARK CYCLEWAY

This is currently out for consultation as the attached scans distributed locally.  It includes the Charter Ave pop-up path already on the net which will become permanent if the project goes ahead.

2  THE SUSTRANS LIAS LINE – NATIONAL CYCLE NETWORK ROUTE 41.

This exciting project will include a sealed surface path on the Leamington – Rugby disused railway line between the Fosse Way and Birdingbury Station, and the branch line from near the Fosse as far as the Blue Lias pub east of Long Itchington.  The project has funding and is currently awaiting planning permission.
