Tenders are due in this week for next stage of Blackburn Valley Route – Chapeltown Greenway (Grange Lane to Cowley Hill). The works should be complete by June. The council will then look to complete next section - from Cowley Hill to Thorncliffe Road - towards end of next financial year.
After much complaint about the state of this section, a bound surface (tarmac) will be installed on 1km of Tongue Gutter at Parsons Cross in New Year, which will be a welcome improvement to the area. It is hoped further surfacing will come on board as / when funding is identified.
