To complete the National cycle network mainly using disused railway lines.

We need a plan for sustainable transport to help solve the climate crises and give people a viable healthier  transport alternative.

Because  the old Beeching lines were sold piecemeal after closure it has become difficult to gain access to complete many of the cycleways often diverting cyclists to dangerous A roads.

There are some 5000 miles of line mostly intact across the UK that could be bought back into use for little cost, connecting every village and town. Sustrans made a start with some 1200 miles completed across beautiful countryside, this network our heritage could become a national asset once more.

WHAT IS NEEDED
A right of way Act across the old beeching railway lines

Funding to be made available to councils and Sustrans to build it.
