The Derwent Valley Trust is pleased to report on a successful application to Highways England for funds (well over £1 million) to design and build the cycleway from Darley Abbey to north of the A38 (with a link to Little Eaton). The design work starts immediately with final completion of this portion of the cycleway in early 2021.
The approximate scope of the funding is highlighted on the map.
Work continues with Derbyshire and Derby Councils and Highways England, together with their contractors, in obtaining the necessary landowner and legal agreements as well as the detailed design.
Excellent news and Highways England is thanked for their generosity in supporting this community led project.
