Further to Andrew’s recent meeting in October with Cllr John Barrett, East Riding Council (ERYC) and the Canal and River Trust to discuss the Goole to Rawcliffe cycle path, please see this link, the Council’s funding bid for the path has been successful.
Andrew reports, “I am delighted that ERYC have received £210,000 through the Government's Rural Development Programme for England growth programme to construct the path.
"Work will commence in spring, with the two metre-wide path running alongside the Aire and Calder Navigation Canal and Dutch River between the Yorkshire Waterways Museum in Goole and the marina in Rawcliffe Bridge. A number of outdoor recreational activities can be enjoyed along the route once complete – walking and cycling, along with the diverse wildlife on offer – and it will also provide connectivity between Goole and Rawcliffe.
“As mentioned previously, I lobbied Ministers to secure this funding and I am delighted that yet again, Conservative Ministers have provided the Goole and Snaith area with more Government funding. I look forward to continuing to support this project and to enjoying the path once it’s complete.”
