On 14 June 2010 the Millennium Greenway reopened following the completion of another of the four major Cycle Demonstration Town infrastructure projects.
Cyclists in West Chester now have set of new links between three popular routes, the Deva Link shared use path, the Millennium Greenway, and the canal towpath. The heavily engineered links involved a great deal of earth moving, foundation laying, and reinforcement of the adjoining slopes. The completed project also includes street lighting, railings, and some prominent signage.
The Chester Cycling Campaign understands from Cheshire West and Chester council that no council tax money was involved in the construction of the link which was funded from Connect2 and Cycle Demonstration Town grants.
The new three-way link provides steps for pedestrians and a series of linked tarmac ramps for cyclists, wheelchairs, and buggies. The finished project will be welcomed by cyclists travelling to popular destinations like the Greyhound Retail Park, the Stadium Way allotments, and the University of Chester.
