The Routes

The project has created 13km of trails for cyclists, walkers and equestrian users. This is mainly off road to enable safer journeys for commuters and leisure users in the locations indicated on the map below. Most of the route is now open for use with the exception of the short section indicated in green. This is due to be delivered later this year as part of the ongoing Northern Access Road works.
