Work starts on town's cycle plan
Work has started on the first phase of Darlington's 3m plan to make the town more cycle-friendly.

Darlington Council has matched the 1.5m which the government gave when the town became one of six national cycling demonstration towns.

The first phase, a new route linking Leadyard Bridge, near the Town Hall, to Feethams, is now under way.

The council said it was committed to encouraging as many people as possible to try alternatives to the car.

Nick Wallis, Darlington Council's cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "The latest work on the ring road is just part of a visionary scheme that will see excellent facilities provided for people who want to walk and cycle in safety in Darlington."
