Call for Keighley to Oxenhope cycle route plan to be resurrected
8:00am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
The scheme was first put forward 11 years ago, but never got off the ground. But now, with the Tour de France Grand Depart heading to the area next summer, there is a demand for the project to be reconsidered.
Worth Valley Conservative district councillors Glen Miller, Rebecca Poulsen and Russell Brown are all behind the idea.
Coun Miller, Conservative group leader on Bradford Council, said: “I have looked again at the plans recently and the proposals are flexible, in that they offer more than one choice of route and have variations to alleviate potential concerns at certain points.”
He said the initiative would bring many benefits, particularly with the world’s most famous cycling race coming through Keighley and the Worth Valley in 2014.
