More commuters can now leave their cars behind after the opening of a £5.8 million cycling and footpath network in South Oxfordshire, linking three large employment centres with nearby towns.

Oxfordshire County Council has announced that it has completed work on five cycling routes which make up the first phase of the Science Vale Cycling Network project – more than 10km of improved cycle and pedestrian paths that are now open to the public.

The routes link the science and research centres at Harwell CampusMilton Park and Culham Science Centre with Abingdon, Wantage and Didcot, including Didcot Parkway railway station. To see the network in full, visit the map of the routes.

OxLEP secured £5.1m of funding for the project via the government’s Local Growth Fund, with the investment helping to increase healthier transport options in the area whilst reducing pressure on road networks.

OxLEP is one of 38 Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in England playing a key role in driving forward economic growth and – by 2021 – it’s expected that central Government will have invested over £12bn into the UK economy via the Local Growth Fund.
