The new Talacre to Ffynongroew cycleway was officially opened by the Deputy Minister for Farming and Food, Rebecca Evans AM and Leader of the Council, Cllr Aaron Shotton yesterday Thursday 2 October.

The new shared use cycleway forms part of a continuous cycling link from the north of Mostyn through into Ffynnongroew and onto Talacre then continuing along National Cycle Network 5 into Prestatyn.

The majority of the cycleway follows the line of the existing All Wales Coastal Path between the A548 in Tan Lan to the junction with Station Road in Talacre, with a section going around the point of Ayr Colliery. It is part of the ‘Linking Flintshire’s Communities’ project which started in 2011.

Deputy Minister for Farming and Food, Rebecca Evans said:

“This new cycleway has been made possible in part thanks to investment from the Welsh Government. It is always a pleasure to see our Rural Development Plan funding in action, making a positive difference in rural communities like Talacre. The Talacre to Ffynongroew cycleway will benefit local people, encouraging them to become more active as well as helping to attract more walkers, cyclists and visitors to our coastline.”

Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of Flintshire County Council said

“I am delighted to be opening the cycleway alongside the Deputy Minister. This project has been delivered as part of the Linking Flintshire’s Communities programme which aims to enhance, develop and promote a series of footpaths, cyclepaths and bridleways to link communities in rural Flintshire. Residents and visitors can now enjoy cycling as well as walking along the County’s coast and countryside.”
