A £50,000 scheme to provide a much-needed safe path for residents and children to get to school has started in Meadowgate Lane, today.
Currently there is no footway along the lane to the Wisbech school which means the new link being created by Cambridgeshire County Council will make it much safer for local residents and pupils.
Cambridgeshire County Councillor Sam Hoy, local member for Wisbech South, said: “This is good news and something I have been campaigning for.
“Providing a path means children can travel safely to school as well as benefiting all other local residents.
“This is a vital link for this road and I welcome the investment. I can’t wait to see it finished.”
