Talacre to Ffynnongroew Cycleway
Work is well under way to create a new shared use cycleway between Talacre and
Ffynongroew as part of the on-going “Linking Flintshire’s Communities” project.
The majority of the proposed cycleway will follow the line of the existing All
Wales Coastal Path between the A548 in Tan Lan to the junction with Station
Road in Talacre, with a section going around the point of Ayr Colliery. This
section of the Coastal Path will be closed until the end of September when the
works will be completed. Also, access to the Bird Hide at the Point of Ayr
Colliery will be prohibited during the construction works.
Once complete the cycleway will provide a continuous cycling link from the
north of Mostyn through into Ffynnongroew and onto Talacre then continuing
along National Cycle Network 5 into Prestatyn
Three schemes have already been completed as part of the “Linking Flintshire’s
Communities” project which started in 2011: Installation of a Pegasus Crossing
at Gronant, a Public Footpath enhancement scheme at Mostyn and an on/off road
cycleway between Mold/Sychdyn and Northop/Flint.
