Walkers, cyclists, horse riders, carriage drivers and motorists will see improvements to the public rights of way network as Cambridgeshire County Council recently adopted its updated Rights of Way Improvement Plan. The adoption of the Plan is the most recent step in making the countryside more accessible and safer for healthy activities. It looks to create a better countryside environment and integrate new housing into the network, taking advantage of any development opportunities to improve routes across Cambridgeshire.

Cambridgeshire County Councillor Ian Bates, Chairman of the Economy and Environment Committee said: "Our first Rights of Way Plan was published in 2006. It has since helped bring about a number of improvements to Cambridgeshire. We now have better access to the countryside with the likes of the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway bridleway and cycleway, as well as improved information thanks to an interactive website which provides a one-stop-shop for local people."

The Rights of Way Improvement Plan forms part of the Cambridgeshire Local Transport Plan. It can be viewed on Cambridgeshire County Council's website:
