Cherilyn Mackrory, Member of Parliament for Truro and Falmouth, has welcomed the news that the Government has provided another £607,000 to support walking and cycling in Cornwall.
The funding is being making available under tranche two of the Government’s £175 million Active Travel Fund.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into focus just how important our daily exercise is. In Cornwall we are blessed to have such an amazing variety of places to walk and cycle to on our doorsteps, but it is crucial that we have the right dedicated cycling and walking infrastructure to allow people to get from place to place safely.”
“I am pleased to support the Saints Trail plans between Perranporth and Newquay and would be delighted to see similar plans come forward for a dedicated cycle route between Truro and Falmouth. I welcome today’s announcement and look forward to working with Cornwall Council to see it is used appropriately.”
