Missing Link of Tarka Trail Receives Go-Ahead
Devon County Councillors have approved proposals to construct the latest section of the Tarka Trail between Barnstaple and Ilfracombe.
The £583,000 scheme will complete a missing link between Buttercombe Lane and Foxhunters as part of a longer-term route to eventually connect Barnstaple to Ilfracombe.
By providing a safe, off-road route more people will be encouraged to walk and cycle to work, place of education or in their leisure time which can help save money, while also improving health and the local environment. These latest improvements will provide an alternative to car journeys which will contribute towards our net zero carbon targets in the county.
Goal TB – Using Active, Shared and Public Transport is Safe, Efficient and Affordable
