HUNTINDON residents can have their say on a new shared path for pedestrian and cyclists which has been proposed for Sapley Road.

The consultation is being held by Cambridgeshire County Council, which says the new path would provide a valuable link between residential areas and Towerfields.

The shared path would have a minimum width of 2m and would be built along the western side of Sapley Road, continuing for nearly 2km and linking up with the existing cycleway that currently ends at Robertson Way.

The consultation runs until February 15, and anyone wanting a copy of the consultation leaflet can contact 01223 718587.

Emma Murden, project manager for CCC, said: "We believe this cycleway will provide a safer link from Towerfields to Main Street benefiting residents, businesses and schools in the local area. The consultation gives local residents the chance to have their say and we would encourage as many of you as possible to let us know your views."

The route was identified as part of the walking and cycling network within the Huntingdon and Godmanchester Market Town Strategy.
