Battle Health Pathway Works Begin Monday

Following the exciting news last month that the Battle Health Pathway has received sufficient funding to go ahead, the team behind this fantastic project can now announce that work is set to begin on Monday 13th July 2020.

After years of hard work and tireless dedication to the cause, the Battle Health Pathway team are showing no signs of slowing down yet, securing the prompt start of building works as soon as Monday 13th July. The installation will be undertaken in protected sections to ensure that there are parts of the recreation ground available for use.

The construction of the Health Pathway is expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete. This will then be followed by the installation of a fantastic cycle skills area, designed for cyclists, rollerbladers and children’s scooter users to develop balance and technical skills away from pedestrians and traffic.

The long-awaited construction of the Battle Health Pathway has come at a time when outdoor exercise and recreation is so incredibly important to the town. The pathway has been crafted to be inclusive of all users, including walkers, runners, young cyclists, scooter users, people with mobility difficulties, individuals working to regain fitness and those with children in push chairs.

This wonderful addition to the town is an outstanding achievement for the Battle Health Pathway Group, under the umbrella of Battle Local Action Planning Group (BLAPG), who can now proudly announce the commencement of works.

The Battle Health Pathway Project Group would once again like to express their gratitude to all those involved in helping to make this project a success. The generous funding bodies behind the project include Places to Ride, Rother District Council, Battle Town Council, Sussex Lund, Rother Environmental Group, Toyota, 1066 Cycle Club and community fund-raising.

An exciting new project that will help to bring Battle closer together again.
