Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

SUS­TRANS has wel­comed the news that more money will be spent on im­prov­ing cy­cle routes in Ash­ford. Area man­ager of the cy­cling char­ity David Young said that the im­prove­ments at Houch­ins field, near Ash­ford Rugby Club, will make a “big dif­fer­ence” to the net­work. It means that the miss­ing link un­der the M20, be­tween Lit­tle Bur­ton Farm and the town cen­tre, can be com­pleted. “It’s fan­tas­tic news,” said Mr Young. “This is a very pic­turesque route run­ning along­side the Great Stour.” He added: “With the ex­pan­sion in Ash­ford over the next 10-20 years, this is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to pro­vide a walk­ing and cy­cling net­work to pro­vide health ben­e­fits, a re­duc­tion in traf­fic and gen­eral well­be­ing for all.”
