This will benefit people walking, cycling, using mobility scooters and wheelchairs. It will also help people travel sustainably, healthily and safely.
The access to/from Wilderspool Causeway will also be upgraded to improve the gateway effect onto the TPT at this location. This would also serve to improve the pedestrian/cycle access towards the Morrisons superstore.
The works associated with the scheme is unlikely to impact on residents who back onto the path. Most of the improvements will be along the line of the existing path. We have had permission from Peel Ports Ltd to carry out the works as the path is on their land.
Currently there are a number of trees along the route, the vast majority of which we will retain due to their importance to the TPT environment. However to facilitate the scheme and to prevent future root damage and leaf drop onto the new path, we will need to remove a small number of trees. A Tree survey has been carried out which confirms the numbers, species, age and condition of the tree stock.
