Grass cutting underway along cycle routes

Grass cutting has been completed alongside the Ringmer Cycleway, between Lewes and RingmerCYCLISTS in East Sussex will enjoy a clearer ride following a programme of grass cutting along county cycle routes.

East Sussex Highways staff have been busy clearing vegetation along the Ringmer Cycleway, between Lewes and Ringmer, with similar work to follow on three other routes in the week beginning July 24.

Grass cutting will be completed alongside the Ouse Valley Nature Reserve between Newhaven and Seaford, Berwick Way Cycleway and Camber Cycleway.

Cllr Nick Bennett, East Sussex County Council lead member for transport and environment, said: “Our cycleways provide a fantastic way for people to get out and about and explore our glorious countryside.

“From time to time it’s necessary for us to clear grass and other vegetation alongside the cycle paths to ensure cyclists have a clear and unimpeded route.

“We’d ask cyclists to take extra care if they’re passing an area where grass cutting is being carried out but all the routes will remain open as normal during the work.”
