New cycle lanes could be introduced across the Westcountry, following a Government announcement on Saturday.
Councils including Devon and Torbay have confirmed they're looking a what new routes could be created.
On Saturday The Government announced money was being available for new schemes and temporary 'pop up' cycle lanes.
Ministers want to help people get around without using their cars or public transport, and build on the increase in cycling during the lockdown.
The Breeze asked Devon County Council if it will ask Network Rail to also reconsider allowing a cycle path over the proposed new Teignmouth seawall, but head of transport Councillor Stuart Hughes told us: "It’s a bit too soon to say as we wait for the details on what we can bid for.
"If we have some shovel ready schemes with planning permission etc then it’ll be to our advantage.
"Exeter is well placed and the Teign Valley Trail there’s also other schemes around Devon."
Welcome the announcement by SoS for Transport Grant Snapps re £2billion being made available for cycling and walking & have already emailed @DevonCC officers to explore which shovel ready schemes we have as this will help our case for investment in our vast cycle/footpath network— Stuart Hughes (@stuarthughescc) May 9, 2020
As a keen Tandem cyclist I welcome the new emphasis the government has on cycling in England. I would welcome any thoughts that people may have regarding opportunities to improve cycling and walking across Torbay.— Steve Darling (@cllrsdarling) May 9, 2020
