As part of the ongoing work for the new flood defences (Our City, Our River), a small stretch of new cyclepath has been laid in Darley Fields and looks very good quality. It is still fenced off at the moment but seems to be an excellent tarmac surface.
The new route (only 50-100m) runs from the existing cycle route through Darley Fields to the route alongside the river next to Parker’s Piece (next to where the bowling green used to be).
Hopefully, this is an indication of the quality of the facilities we can expect as the flood defence project progresses.
Well done to the contractors so far.
