Consultation Event: Rochdale Canal – Hebden Bridge Trades Club
November 30, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
This scheme will deliver approximately 13km of upgrades to an important section of Rochdale Canal, some of which is currently in a very poor state of repair. The scheme would involve the upgrade of an off-highway cycle route with high quality surfacing from Lock 1 in Sowerby Bridge to the entrance to the canal towpath at the end of Union Street, Lock 18 in Todmorden, through the town of Luddenden Foot, Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge, enabling the towpath to be used safely and comfortably by cyclists and pedestrians all year round.
The upgraded towpath will provide the communities along this route with a convenient option to travel between them away from the roads for leisure, utility or employment. It will also improve the connectivity to a number of off-highway cycle routes in the local area.
This scheme will be delivered in two phases. Phase 1 is the section from Sowerby Bridge to Stubbings Bridge (Bridge 19) near Hebden Bridge and Phase 2 is from Stubbings Bridge to Todmorden. All CityConnect projects are anticipated to be complete by summer 2018.
We invite you to drop-in and give your opinion on the Rochdale Canal improvements and to ask your questions directly to the CityConnect team and scheme designers where you can also view the detailed maps.
The Hebden Bridge drop-in session will run between 4.30pm and 7.30pm at the Hebden Bridge Trades Club, please come along.
Or if you can’t make this one then we have two other Consultation events being held for this consultation, as follows;
Sowerby Bridge – Happy Days Café – Thursday 1st December, between 4.30pm and 7.30pm
Todmorden – Town Hall – Friday 2nd December, between 4.30pm and 7.30pm
