Extension planned for Aylesbury's greenway

The new link would be between Waddesdon Greenway and Haydon Hill, Aylesbury.

The current traffic free link has attracted more than 70,000 users in its first year. 

Now, the cycle and walking route is set to connect with Aylesbury's cycle network.

The two-thirds-of-a-mile 'greenway' link, funded by a £400,000 grant from the Department for Transport through the walking and cycling charity, Sustrans, will eventually create a dedicated cycle route from the centre of Aylesbury to Waddesdon Manor and village.

The route is planned to go via Aylesbury Vale Parkway station.

Currently, padestrians and cyclists have to pass the busy A41 twice.

It has been welcomed by Paul Irwin, County Council Deputy Cabinet Member for Transport:

"This new link will make a much easier and safer cycle ride, and walking will be much more pleasant," said Paul. "Hopefully, it will encourage more people from the town to use the brilliant Waddesdon Greenway.

"With increasing national dialogue on the need to invest tangibly in protecting our environment and encouraging healthy living, I'm pleased we're forging ahead with plans like these to give our residents attractive travel alternatives."

Extension plans

County Councillor Clive Harriss, Cycle Champion for the Garden Town, said:

"What a great asset this will be to our residents!

"It'll help realise our vision that people will choose to walk, cycle or use public transport for everyday journeys because the town is easy to navigate and has an integrated and inclusive transport system."
