New cycle path proposed for North Hykeham

Lincolnshire County Council are consulting local residents over plans to build a footway and cycle path between North and South Hykeham.

The proposals will turn an existing footpath along Beck Lane and Mill Lane into a new path for both cyclists and pedestrians.

It hopes the work will mean better links between the two villages and the Community Primary School.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Councillor for Highways and Transportation at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Residents in North and South Hykeham have been requesting a cycle path along Mill Lane for a long time now.

“It was also identified as a key area of improvement in Access LN6′s audit of walking and cycling infrastructure in LN6.

“We’re very keen to improve the area and are confident that the shared footway and cycle path will encourage more residents to walk and cycle between the two villages, and to and from South Hykeham Community Primary School.”
