A new pedestrian and cycle path which will connect Goole and Rawcliffe Bridge is set to be built.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has received funding of £210,000 from the Rural Development Programme for England growth programme to construct the path which will run alongside the Aire and Calder Navigation Canal.
The council will work alongside partners including the Canal and River Trust, Environment Agency, Yorkshire Waterways Museum and Sobriety Project to create the 3.8km link which will include a new 2.2km and two metre-wide surfaced route along the towpath.
The work is due to get underway in spring and will also provide access to the eastern section of the Desmond Family Canoe Trail as well as a diverse wildlife habitat.
Councillor Symon Fraser, portfolio holder for strategic asset management, housing and environment at East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “This is great news that funding has been received for this project which, when complete, will connect local businesses and communities.
“Creating and improving this infrastructure will provide an attractive and safe route for a wide range of outdoor activities that enable people with a range of abilities and mobility needs to enjoy the waterside and facilities at either end.”
