Money well spent.

I believe the cycle path of the Stop Line Way is money well spent.

It promotes exercise and health in all ages. It enables walkers, as well as cyclists, to get out into the countryside, especially as many young children do not have large gardens to play in.

It fights obesity in all ages.

Linking up with other Sustrans cyle routes is great for tourism, as well as locals.

If there is a slurry problem it is up to the farmer concerned not to pollute. The cleaning away of river deposits should be suitably managed.
