A CYCLING route between Corbridge and Hexham is among the walking and cycling infrastructure plans currently being consulted on.

A consultation is seeking views on Northumberland County Council's plans to enhance the walking and cycling infrastructure in the county and the proposed walking and cycling networks for the 12 main towns in Northumberland.

A cycling corridor between Hexham and Corbridge is listed as a proposed priority for investment.

Discussions about connecting the two Tyne Valley communities with a better cycling route have been ongoing for more than 20 years.

Nick Oliver, county councillor for Corbridge, said: "It’s good to see the corridor between Corbridge and Hexham, and I would encourage all Corbridge residents to get onto the consultation and support the proposals."

Other priority cycling corridors for investment include between Acomb and Hexham town centre.

The council said views collected through this consultation will help shape active travel in Northumberland over the next 10 years.

The Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans consultation will run until April 15, 2022.
