Aire & Calder Navigation Towpath Trail Update

As residents may be aware, the existing grass towpath between Pasture Clough Pumping Station, East of Rawcliffe Bridge and Goole Marina is to be upgraded to a 2m wide granular surfaced facility. 

Andrew reports, "These works started earlier this month and are expected to take 7 weeks to complete. Please note that there is a temporary diversion in place for users whilst the works are taking place. 

"This project has been developed by the council, the Canal and River Trust and the Environment Agency. Funding for the project came via the Government's Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) growth programme. 

"Once complete, visitors will be able to enjoy walking and cycling on the all-weather route, along with enjoying the diverse wildlife on offer."
