|Have your say on the Chisholm Trail 20 October, 2015|
A public consultation on proposals for the Chisholm Trail, a foot and cycleway linking the north and south of the city, is now under way.
This mainly off-road route would link residential areas and big employment sites by a path which closely follows the railway line. The Trail would provide an off-road link from Ditton Meadows to other green spaces including Coldham’s Common via a new underpass below Newmarket Road. Proposals include a path along the edge of Ditton Meadows, close to the railway line and widening the jetty under the railway bridge. The route includes the proposed Abbey–Chesterton bridge; however, the bridge and the Trail are separate projects, subject to decisions by different authorities.
