Staffordshire County Council are constructing a new cycle path connecting the West end of NCN Route 549 to the town centre and this will eliminate the need to cycle on the busy road which runs from the A50 roundabout on the far side of the River Dove Bridge.
There is much work to be done yet but it will be a big improvement when complete.
View at end of R549 with A50 roundabout to the right, The Dove Bridge PH opposite, and the road to Uttoxeter on the left.
View looking towards Uttoxeter with path ready for top coat of tarmac. It currently ends at the "Welcome to Uttoxeter" sign, but appears to be heading in the right direction from there on.
