Erewash Valley Sustrans Rangers

Friday, 9 July 2010

The Erewash Valley trail project is a partnership involving British Waterways, the Local & County Councils and various other interested parties to deliver £520,000 of environmental improvements during 2010/11. This includes the formation of walking & cycling trails as well as benefits to wildlife and encouraging healthy living and connecting local communities.

Tony Allcock and I attended a grand opening of one of the phases of these improvements at Trent Lock on 5th July. This celebrated the completion of towpath surface upgrading between Trent Lock and Sandiacre and the restoration of a British Waterways warehouse at Trent Lock. The event was hosted by BW and included the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Broxtowe & Erewash. We had a chat with Tony Harvey from BW Head of regeneration midands. He was keen on pressing on with the Long Horse Bridge replacement proposal at the junction of the Trent , Derwent and Trent Mersey canal and sought support from Sustrans to help drive this along. It was not obvious how this would fit in with Sustrans cycle network but Tony agreed to pass his request for a dialogue on to Les Sims.
