Work begins on Waddesdon Greenway route

After a long, wet winter & spring, local contractors Hazell and Jefferies have now started work on the new Waddesdon Greenway route between Aylesbury Vale Parkway railway station and Waddesdon Manor.

The route, due to open in July 2018, will offer a safe even path, away from the busy A41, for pedestrians, wheelchair users and pushchairs.

Local residents are invited to join the project team to walk the 4km route on Monday 30th April, starting at the Information Centre at Waddesdon Manor car park at 3.30pm. For those interested in helping the route become a success, a Supporters’ meeting is being held at The Lion in Waddesdon on Monday 30th April starting at 7.30pm.

About the Waddesdon Greenway

Linking Aylesbury Vale Parkway station with Waddesdon village, the greenway trail will allow cyclists and walkers to travel across beautiful countryside in a traffic-free environment, and provide access for them to Waddesdon Manor.

It’s the outcome of a £1 million partnership between Buckinghamshire County Council, the Greenways and Cycle Routes charity, the Cycle Rail Working Group and the Waddesdon Estate.

The trail, connecting with other cycle routes and footpaths in Aylesbury Vale, is being funded by the Department for Transport as part of a scheme to connect rural communities to their nearest rail station.
