CANAL TOWPATH PROJECT
The former Cycle Devizes group with volunteers from Devizes Community Area Partnership identified areas for immediate action including the canal towpath.
The community groups successfully lobbied the Canal and Rivers Trust and Wiltshire Council at high level, then worked with all parties to place the towpath as their top priority for safe and pleasant cycling and walking, pushing prams and wheel chairs by the Canal.

The first phase of the project (London Road to the Hospital Bridge) has been completed.
The second phase (The Wharf to The Nursery/Bath Road) is in construction phase.
The third phase needs further partnership. Sustrans funding is vulnerable to central government cuts despite the rhetoric to get people cycling.
