Another link in Chesterfield cycle path officially opened
Another link in the Chesterfield cycle path was officially opened on Friday, September 16 2016.
Derbyshire County Council Deputy Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, Cllr John Owen, cut the ribbon on the new 30-metre span bridge over Hollis Lane and then led the way over it followed by pupils from Brockwell Junior School, Cavendish Junior School, Old Hall Junior School and Hasland Junior School.
This development marks a major milestone in the cycle path between Queen's Park and Chesterfield train station.
The path will provide a direct route from the station across a series of new and re-furbished bridges to connect with existing paths linking to Derby Road, the Ravenside retail park and the Hipper Valley Trail to Somersall.
The new path is being installed as part of the Chesterfield Cycle Network, which is a long-term project to link shopping areas to the train and bus station and main residential areas in the town.
