New route in Aylesbury opens and work starts in Somerset

On 24 August we opened a link between the Waddesdon Greenway at Aylesbury Vale Parkway station and Haydon Hill, and the Emerald Way to the town centre. John Grimshaw of Greenways came up with the idea, designed the route, obtained all the permissions and supervised construction, Greenfords built it, Buckinghamshire Council were the clients, and Sustrans DfT Active Travel funds paid for it. A good partnership!

On 3 September we obtained final consents for a route linking the existing cycle path from Wells to Dulcote Quarry. The route was the idea of the Strawberry Line group, has been designed by Greenways, funded by Mendip, and local contractors Goldings have started work.
