Cycle path improvements to take place


Work to connect Cleator Moor with two sections of the C2C cycle track will begin next week.Two informal paths used as access points to the track – one from Jacktrees Road and the other from Leconfield Industrial Estate – will be improved to create multi-user paths to improve and fully establish the connections.

Work on the Jacktrees Road path connection will begin on Monday and will take between three and four weeks, after which the Leconfield Industrial Estate work will begin and take a further two weeks.

These access improvements will cost £27,540 and are the first of a series of new projects to boost Cleator Moor over the coming months, thanks to a funding bid from Copeland Council.  

The council has secured total of £500,000 immediate funding for Cleator Moor, while work was ongoing by the Town Board on the significant funding bid to the Government’s Towns Fund that was made last month.

Cleator Moor’s remaining money is earmarked for an upgrade of the children’s play area at Jacktrees Road and a new 3G pitch and improved fencing and lighting at Cleator Moor Activity Centre. Work on these schemes will begin before April.

Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, said: “These new connections to the C2C are win-win; they provide users of the path with a better route in to access Cleator Moor, and give Cleator Moor residents better access to the path that can be used to cycle, jog or walk.

“This is an important milestone because it signifies the start of this ‘accelerated’ funding aspect of the Towns Fund plan, with much-welcomed improvements to the children’s play area and sporting facilities to follow soon.

“And we hope this is just a start, as we await feedback on the Towns Board’s bid for transformational funding for Cleator Moor.”
