The 2.5KM path running besides Falmer Road B2123 has been fully widened and resurfaced with black top. The works started in March 2021 to replace the 7 year old non-sealed route.
This now means that the 2.5KM path can be used by all non motor vehicles including wheelchairs, skateboards & road bicycles at all times of the year. Despite the previous path only being 7 years old, due to its heavy usage, terrain & drainage left it severely rutted and difficult for some users to use, as well as not being particularly wide resulting in a hostile environment for pedestrians.
Whilst the new path is only 2.5m wide, it does allow greater room for everyone however it doesn’t meet standards for the level of usage.
