Project Overview: Delivery of shared-use cycling and walking path to link two coastal towns: Dawlish and Teignmouth.
This will provide a safe family-friendly cycling and walking route between Teignmouth and Dawlish and will also provide a link between the existing Exe Estuary Trail and the not yet built Teign Estuary Trail. The Exe Estuary Trail is a route of strategic importance within Devon and has led to a significant boost to local economy and leisure/commuting opportunities. The extension of this route through Dawlish and southwards to Teignmouth will enable a boost to local businesses located along the route, opportunities for establishment of new businesses, and leisure/commuting opportunities for residents within the Teignmouth and Dawlish areas. The path will facilitate and encourage sustainable travel, active leisure and associated health benefits.
Some of the key targets are listed below:
- Creating jobs and related economic growth in an environmentally sustainable manner.
- Aligning with local economic plans and involving the local community.
- Delivering economic benefits outside of the typical tourist season.
- Ensuring economic, social and environmental benefits of the project will be sustained.
