You may have seen the workmen digging up the pavement at the bottom of Feethams.
This is phase one of an ambitious scheme to link the town centre with South Park. In the next 4 weeks the Leadyard to Feethams element will be completed. By March, the completed route, which will include a new dedicated crossing for cyclists and pedestrians across the ring road (replacing the existing lights) will be in place. Cyclists will be able to travel along Victoria Road Back Lane, and then over Victoria Road to Bedford Street, and then on to the park..
This is part of our Cycling Demonstration Town project. Latest figures show that cycling in Darlington's schools is 5 times the national average.
As I may or may not say in the Echo over the next couple of days, "The latest work on the ring road is just part of a visionary scheme that will see excellent facilities provided for people who want to walk and cycle in safety in Darlington."
