A £400,000 scheme providing a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists, linking Cranfield village with the university and Technology Park, has been officially opened. The path links the university with National Cycle Route 51 and will enable staff and students to walk and cycle to the university, separate from traffic, whilst also providing a leisure amenity for residents. The path was commissioned, planned and delivered by Central Bedfordshire Council who worked with Sustrans and the university. The path was funded by the Department for Transport Cycle Safety Fund and a substantial contribution from Cranfield University.
The official eventwas attended by Cllr Sue Clark, ward member for Cranfield, and the ribbon was cut by Peter Bate, area manager for Sustrans.
