Work is due to begin to create a new cycleway between Ffynnongroew and Talacre as part of the on-going project ‘Linking Flintshire’s Communities’. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The proposed cycleway will follow 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. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

This part of the Coastal Path will be closed from 24 June to the end of August while the work is carried out. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Once complete the cycleway will provide a continuous cycling link from the north of Mostyn through into Ffynnongroew and onto Talacre then continuing along National Cycle Network 5 into Prestatyn.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

During construction, the Bird Hide at the Point of Ayr Colliery will also be closed and the Highway Authority may use its requisite powers to enter adjacent land to undertake some of the works.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‘Linking Flintshire’s Communities’ project has been implemented by Flintshire County Council since March 2011 with three schemes already completed: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Installation of a Pegasus Crossing at Gronant, a public footpath enhancement scheme at Mostyn and an on/off road cycleway between Mold/Sychdyn and Northop/Flint.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The Linking Flintshire’s Communities project aims to deliver environmental, social and economic sustainability objectives, particularly around transport and climate change, social cohesion and connectivity and by enhancing, developing and promoting a series of footpaths, cyclepaths and bridleways within rural Flintshire.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The project has received around £715,000 of funding from the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. Other funding has come through the Regional Transport Fund, the Local Transport Fund and Flintshire County Council and is in the region of £500,000.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
