Over the next four years (2015 - 2019), East Lancashire will be developing its Strategic Cycleway Network, which, when completed will provide 23km of new and 95km of improved routes in the area. This will include imporved links to the Enterprise Zone at Samlesbury and other key employment sites at Huncoat, Whitebirk, Blackburn Town Centre, Rising Bridge, Haslingden and along the Rossendale Valley.
As well as being available for commuters, these new cycleways will also provide benefits for leisure, health and tourism cyclists. The cycleway network will focus on connecting gaps in the existing networks, to maximise connectivity and deliver high-quality, end-to end cycle networks.
