Sustrans’ Vision 2040 for Cheshire – just published!

21st May 2021 — Sustrans want to add 5,000 miles of traffic free infrastructure to the network by 2040

Sustrans’ planned routes are shown as dotted lines on the Cheshire map and you will see this includes linking :

  • the Greenway in Mickle Trafford to Helsby.
  • Frodsham to Runcorn with new bridges over the river Weaver and Weaver Navigation.
  • Helsby to Wrexham via Kelsall and Tarporley using the disused rail line to Mouldsworth.
  • with much more to like! e.g. a possible ‘Ferry cross the Mersey’.

We have been promised more detail later in the year.

Patience will be a virtue, as these projects are ambitious and Sustrans’ track record averaging 250 miles a year is dependent on government funding, donations and membership subscriptions.

Importantly this is separate from the DfT’s funding of urban LCWIP links which includes the Castle Park to Helsby High School link segregated track - see 30th January News post below.
