PROPOSALS for new cycling and walking routes have been revealed.

New schemes in Westhoughton and Astley Bridge have been put forward by the council in the latest round of funding bids for the region-wide Bee Network.

A central segregated north-south spine through Westhoughton, developed by the Bolton Active Travel Forum, aims to address the lack of dedicated and safe access to schools, rail stations, retail and key employment areas.

It also seeks to overcome severance issues with improved crossing points and in the process facilitate an increase in active travel.
