Partnership could produce vital cycleway

A LEADING New Forest organisation is being asked to donate enough land to enable a cycleway to be built between Totton and Marchwood .

The Marchwood-based Barker-Mill Estates could play a vital role in the campaign to provide cyclists and pedestrians with a safer route following two fadeaths.

Gary Lewis, 22, of Park Close, Marchwood, was killed in a collision with a lorry at Jacobs Gutter Lane, Totton, in 2009.

It happened just yards from the spot where moped rider Stephen Tippetts, 30, of Maritime Avenue, Marchwood, died three months earlier.

The two deaths sparked a public meeting at which residents demanded urgent action to prevent further fatalities.

Businesses in the area have offered to cut the cost of a cycle route by providing money, materials and equipment.

Now Marchwood county councillor David Harrison has revealed that further progress was made at a meeting with Simon Barker from Longdown Management, which runs property owned by Barker-Mill Estates.

Cllr Harrison said Mr Barnes had agreed to ask Barker-Mill to release the land needed to build a cycleway.

Marchwood Aggregates, which owns a nearby quarry, will be asked to supply gravel and machinery and engineering experts at Marchwood Military Port might agree to take a look at flooding issues on the proposed route.

“If we can pull this off, it will be a great example of joint working towards a positive outcome,” said Cllr Harrison.

Hope it turns out better than the "cycle path" down at riverside which is just a load of gravel full of sharp stones.

I think he means the new section parallel to Abbey Hill..? Its not been laid as they said it would. We thought it would be proper tarmac like the bit by the car parks but they've just put down brown gravel.

No, I meant the one that runs 100 meters between Mansbridge road and a path that leads from River Walk but you have provided another example of a rubbish "cycle" path.

Ahh right.

I rode the Abbey Hill one just after it was laid and the chippings flicked up into the gears. Hate it when that happens as it reduces the life of the chain, sprocket and jog wheels

Indeed, on a MTB it's not so bad as you would expect it to happen anyway if you use it regularly for off-road but not on something like a roadie, those chippings are lethal to road tires too, even the ones that fit MTB's, had a set on my MTB before I sold it and I picked a couple of punctures up from such chippings, will never use such a path when I get the hybrid I'm going after as it has proper roadie wheels and tyres.

"fadeaths"........

The journalist obviously wrote ".....a safer route following two fatal accidents." Either he or his editor decided that "following two deaths" sounded better than "following two fatal accidents". So he stuck the cursor between the "s" and the "." at the end of "accidents", and typed "deaths". Re-inserting the cursor between the "s" of "accidents" and the "d" of "deaths", either by deletion or highlighting he attempted to remove "fatal accidents", but left "fa" of "fatal" undeleted by mistake.

What do you think, Downfader ?

I'm a 24/7 carer, so "sauce" is out.

There are a few posters who grace this forum with a lot of unsubstantiated, trivial nonsense, so my comment should be viewed as light-hearted satire !

I am humbled, touched, and will now treat you with absolute respect.

Just remember, I only tease the cycle fanatics for a bit of fun.

Well considering it's the echo, they probably hire monkeys to do the typing and I'll be honest, downfader probably has his reasons, just like I do.

Now if you'd directed your comment to Downfader instead of me, he would most likely have missed the humour and come back with something like :

"Don't be ridiculous, Gingercyclist ! The employment of monkeys is strictly prohibited by the National Employment Act, 1989 ( it is to be found in section 9, paragraph 4b ), and the Factory Act, 1997 ( revised 2002 ). Also, in his Monkey Projects Part 2, 1958 - 1985, Professor Foozlewoozle makes it quite clear that although primates may stand for local and national elections, it will be another 1000 years or more before they will be able to write their own names. And considerably longer before they can type and edit."

LOL !

Just remember, I only tease the cycle fanatics for a bit of fun.

Except Downfader, who does seem to be on another planet ! He just bangs on relentlessly and regardlessly until all the posters around him have collapsed. I thought I was a stayer, but i can't match his tenacity ! LOL !
Well considering it's the echo, they probably hire monkeys to do the typing and I'll be honest, downfader probably has his reasons, just like I do.
Now if you'd directed your comment to Downfader instead of me, he would most likely have missed the humour and come back with something like :

"Don't be ridiculous, Gingercyclist ! The employment of monkeys is strictly prohibited by the National Employment Act, 1989 ( it is to be found in section 9, paragraph 4b ), and the Factory Act, 1997 ( revised 2002 ). Also, in his Monkey Projects Part 2, 1958 - 1985, Professor Foozlewoozle makes it quite clear that although primates may stand for local and national elections, it will be another 1000 years or more before they will be able to write their own names. And considerably longer before they can type and edit."

LOL !
No, I think he would get what I mean by the fact that the echo have trouble spelling simple words.
Very funny, Ginger.

So it's the Echo itself that makes spelling errors, not the journalists ?
