Further council improvement works to public footpaths are due to start this month.

Mid Sussex District Council is set to start work on ‘route 11’ of its Green Circle path and cycleway improvement plans.

This will see Manor Road, Cants Lane and Kingsway, existing footpaths at the eastern extent of the town, connected.

Some of these paths form part of the green circle network, a series of footpaths, cycle tracks and bridleways linking the green sites around the edge of the town.

Recent improvements to the green circle path and cycleway between Gatehouse Lane and Malthouse Lane have now been completed and reopened to the public.

The 11-route plan will improve links by: resurfacing or surfacing where required with an appropriate finish; removing barriers to provide accessible facilities to all; signposting routes where using road carriageway.

The council also plans to drop kerbs and improve highway crossing points.

The early improvement schemes require no changes to on-street parking and will not impact any bus routes.
