Halstead: New riverside paths unveiled
1:15pm Thursday 7th February 2013 in News
A new network of paths have been unveiled as the latest part of a picturesque riverside walk.
Braintree Council has spent £158,000 on laying new paths along Halstead’s River Walk, beside the River Colne.
It now stretches a further 960 metres from Chaffinch Way to the Parsonage Street Allotments, connecting to all the existing footpaths.
The improvements began in June 2011 and the cash for the work came from Section 106 agreements made with developers building in Halstead.
The new 2.5 metre-wide gravel track was officially unveiled on Saturday by Halstead mayor David Hume and district councillor Patricia Newton, cabinet member for planning and prosperity.
