A new cycle route could be created along the Lincolnshire coast, through the classic seaside resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe.
Sustrans and Lincolnshire County Council are working on a “coastal access study” for the 30 miles between Saltfleet and Gibraltar Point. At present, cycling the route involves both quiet, peaceful coastal roads and busy town highways – as well as some stretches of coast where there is no access at all.
The project is being funded by the Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership. Councillor Colin Davie told the East Lindsey Target:
“Through this project we have the real opportunity to open up our coastline to cyclists and walkers and the £4million fund from the Lincolnshire LEP will enable us to do that. This will give more people an opportunity to enjoy our beautiful beaches and open up a huge economic opportunity.”
