Row over cycle track in Acomb
5:51am 9th November 2009
A group of Acomb councillors have called-in a decision to extend a cycle track along Beckfield Lane.
Councillor Tracy Simpson-Laing says the £300,000 scheme will be a waste of money and other roads should benefit first.
She's told Minster FM local residents don't want it, as they think more accidents will occur with the cycle-path going past driveways.
The plans were approved in October by Lib Dem Transport Official, Steve Galloway he says extending the cycle-track along Beckfield Lane in Acomb is the right thing to do.
He approved the decision at the back end of October.
