The cycleway from Manor Roundabout to the Bincombe junction will be open in mid to late March. The sections in this area that lead into the park and ride site will be open by the summer.
- The cycleway through the Littlemoor gap is behind the noise barrier. The planting through this section is currently being completed and the mud will soon be cleaned off the path. As the path approaches the Littlemoor Road bridge, cyclists can either fork left and join the paths on the south side of Littlemoor Road or continue north under the new bridge.
- The Monkton footway/cycleway is now progressing well with the sub-base stone layer being prepared for surfacing.
The northern section of cycleway between the Bincombe junction up to the Ridgeway bridge and down to the lone house, Swallows Rest, will be open by the summer.
The Littlemoor Road cycleways will be open by the summer.
Where possible the surfacing for the paths has been laid with a paving machine, which gives a smoother ride than a hand laid surface.
Typically the surfacing is 65mm thick and is laid in one layer, which should require less long term maintenance.
All the footway/cycleways have a shared surface so there are no white lines dividing the route.
