New super-safe cycle path developed at Darlington School

8th July 2014


STUDENTS will get the chance to change direction as they make their way to and from their school.

A new super-safe cycle path is being developed at the back of Darlington School of Mathematics and Science linking the academy with a cycle network so they can avoid the roads.

Part of Darlington Borough Council’s travel plan, the new route uses state of the art sensory lighting allowing children to use the paths all year round.

Leaving DSMS from behind the dining hall, the path joins a network of existing cycle-ways along the Cocker Beck greenbelt.

It will also provide invaluable access to students who live along Staindrop Road, on Mowden Park, Carmel Road and Hummersknott.

DSMS deputy head Neil Johnson said: “Cycling improves students’ health and wellbeing and also helps reduce congestion. So we are delighted with the new cycle path which should encourage students and staff to take to two wheels.”
