More improvements to Wales Coast Path

Published: 16/03/2016

Flintshire County Council Engineers, Rights of Way and Countryside officers have teamed up to create an alternative cycle path under the Hawarden Railway Bridge in Shotton. Following the bad storms over the past few years, an embankment was breached which meant that the existing cycle path flooded every high tide. Cllr Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet member for Environment, said: “We were able to secure Wales Coast Path funding of £20,000 and our contractors, G Lewis, have done a great job improving this footpath and cycletrack. This work will continue as and when we can secure more funding, This new improved route is a safe alternative and will benefit the local community and the many people who make use of this path, including the cycling charity Sustrans.” From the leftt: Stuart Jones - Rights of Way Officer, Graham Harper from Sustrans, Tom Woodall - Head of Countryside Service and Cllr Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Environment.
