Barnsley Council is working with Sustrans and the Trans Pennine Trail to improve the trail between Smithy Wood Lane in Dodworth and Haverlands Lane in Worsborough. Thanks to a grant from the Department for Transport we'll be improving the surface, access, drainage, seating, signage and information on this section of the route. The path will be resurfaced using flexipave and will be 2.5 metres wide. There will be an additional soft strip for horses. Work is expected to start in September 2020.
We want to make the Trans Pennine Trail accessible for everyone, whether you’re in a wheelchair, riding a bike, on a horse, or pushing a pram. We will also be making habitat improvements for Willow Tits (a priority species found on this section of the route).
We would like to know what improvements the community would like to see, in addition to the path improvements we'll be making (e.g. different access barriers, particular signage, type of seating etc.). We would also like to know of any activities that local residents and other users of the route would be interested in. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. It should take approximatley 10 minutes to complete.
A map of the section of path that we are improving can be viewed online (we're improving the section between the two green pins). We recommend that you open this link in a new tab. https://sustrans-uk.maps.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?webmap=ac98a28e98f14c45bce3b6a806de3edc
