Row over cycle track in Acomb

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.
