Seafront cycle path link set for official opening

CYCLISTS are looking forward to the opening of a new seafront link to Bexhill.

A ribbon cutting ceremony to formally launch the new amenity at Glyne Gap has been provisionally planned for Tuesday, January 24.

The cycle path has become part of the nationwide Sustrans Connect 2 network, but locally provides a missing link between the resorts. Covering a distance of 1.36 miles, or 2.2 kilometres, the path was constructed by the Jackson Civil Engineering at a cost of some £360,000.

In addition to this month’s ribbon-cutting, an official Sustrans opening is planned for one of two Saturdays in April - either April 21 or April 28.
