Tonia Antoniazzi has today announced her support for a campaign for a new walking and cycling path across Clyne Common. A petition has gained the support of over 1000 local people, who have now formed a GAP (Gower Access Path) group to campaign for a path.
A new path would open up the village, allowing people who do not have transport to easily get in and out of Bishopston. As well as catering for adult cyclists and pedestrians, a route across the Common would provide a safe route to Bishopston Comprehensive for children travelling from West Cross and the Mayals.
Swansea Council and the Welsh Government have announced extensive funding into new safe routes in Gower. Including the Kingsbridge link, which will connect Gowerton and Gorseinon. Along with the new North Gower Trail in Penclawdd.
You can support the campaign by signing the petition is can be signed here.
“I’m delighted to support this campaign”.
Tonia said “I’m delighted to support this campaign. The provision of a safe travel corridor for non-motorists alongside the B4436 is long overdue and would further open Gower to more environmentally friendly travel, benefitting both local residents and visitors.
This would prove invaluable to pedestrians and cyclists who commute on a dangerous road. I’m looking forward to pitching in and doing my bit for the campaign. My late father was the owner of the County Cycle Crosshands and Llanelli so I’ve grown up cycling. I look forward to cycling on this path”.
Adam Gilbert, local Gower Access Path campaigner, said “"It's great to get Tonia on board with the campaign, it's nice to have an MP who listens to the concerns of local people.”
“I've been campaigning for this path for a long time now so I'm delighted to see the campaign picking up steam."
