Leamington and Warwick to get seven miles of cycle paths

Route may centre on recently approved Tachbrook Country Park

The Leamington Observer reports that Warwick council are looking to extend the district’s cycle network. An additional seven miles of cycle paths would see the network around Leamington and Warwick double in size.

Campaigners have welcomed the news but are keen to see routes linking busier areas. Tony Lewenz, from campaign group Cycleways, said:

"We always support the introduction of new cycling infrastructure. We hope the route will help connect people to the places they need to go like residential areas, schools, town centres and areas of employment.

 "If part of the scheme also includes access to Warwick town centre, that would be valuable as cycle access is still difficult."

The route may have links to the development of Tachbrook Country Park. Approved last month, the plan is to create a new strip of country park to prevent further urban encroachment into the countryside within which cycle paths have been deemed ‘essential’.

However, Ray Bullen, a supporter of the Save Warwick campaign, has described the heavily sloping area as being ‘a very unsuitable spot’ for a country park.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
