PLANS for a new cycle path which will provide a link from Westbrook through to Dallam have been proposed by the council.

The new path will provide crucial links which will connect residents in the areas into education, employment and leisure sites.

The council are set to consult local residents to gauge their views on the proposals.

Clr Linda Dirir, who is executive member for highways, transportation and climate change, said, “We hope this new scheme will give residents in these areas more access to local business parks and education.”

“The new path will also help reduce congestion in the area and encourage people to take up healthier forms of transport.”

Consultation with residents runs until Friday, February 7.

Drop in sessions take place at Orfod Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub onThursday, from 2pm until 7pm and on Friday, January 24 at Westbrook Library from 2pm until 7pm.

If it links Dallam to Westbrook why are consultations being held in Orford?

A perfectly good path already exists between Dallam & Westbrook which is well used by pedestrians & cyclists. Why are WBC proposing to spend scarce resources on something that already exists. Another typically wasteful local government scheme.

Most cyclists would rather use the road tbh, on a decent road bike 20mph and above is quite normal, this would be unsafe on a shared use path. you'd get to your destination quicker on the road.

It is WBC you know foggy, They are full of self importance, Idea,s like these are the norm just before elections are due. They want you to use your bike instead of paying car park fee,s, Then they can put up car park charges to cover the loss. Its all good planning,
