Go-ahead for cycle path work

THE route for the final phase of the Newtownabbey Way walking and cycling path has been granted approval by Planning Service.

The application by Newtownabbey Borough Council for works to the path between Mossley Mill and the junction of the Doagh Road and Manse Road went through the local authority’s Planning and Consultation Committee on March 12.

Members were informed that there had been one objection to the plan, which will also involve the erection of fencing and four CCTV cameras along the route.
