Welcome to part 2 of our exploration of the old Mickle Trafford-Deeside Railway: now the Millennium Greenway
Part II: Newton Lane to Mickle Trafford
After years of talk and 'consultation' Hoole Bridge remains a death trap for cyclists and pedestrians. Demand action NOW!
January 2009- Well, we're sure you'll agree that the time is long overdue for this hopelessly out-of-date version of our virtual journey along the Millennium Greenway- largely dealing as it does with the bitter, years-long battle to preserve our car-free path from the iniquities of the CDTS 'Guided Busway'- to be gracefully retired into the archives and a complete re-write to take place. This would add all of the new photographs and other material that this writer has been thigh-deep in for the last few years, tell of the very welcome extension of the route to Guilden Sutton that is about to take place, add better access information and detailed maps, provide a guide to hotels, shops, pubs, cafes etc close to the path- and generally provide a much, much more positive, regularly-updated read than it currently is!
That's a lot of work and sadly, we are now financially utterly incapable of taking the job on- without your help. If you are in a position to donate towards the site's renaissance, brilliant. If you're in business along the route, consider advertising with us. We can design (for free!) a jolly banner advertisment for you with details of your business, your contact details, links to your website and email- and a map directing Greenway travellers to your establishment!

Or return to part 1 of our 'virtual stroll' along the Mickle Trafford-Deeside railway: Newton Lane to Saughall - and, in case you're still entertaining doubts, prepare for a shock when you go here to see some 'artist's impressions' of the completed busway!
25th April 2002: "I have been asked to give some idea how people can access the Sustrans cycle/walkway. I hope these details will help those wanting to use this excellent facility since reading so much about the value of this tranquil route in the Standard Points of View pages.
