Turf Locks Cycle Trail

Went out cycling yesterday and ended up at The Turf Locks (no beer for me  though!) and as a result had a look at the progress on the remaining part of the cycle way construction – Turf Locks to Powderham. Its nearly finished ….. had a chat with a chap who seemed ‘in the know’ and he thought it would be finished within a week. Here are a few photos.

Turf Locks-2Looking back at the Turf Locks – NB now closed in the evening ….

Track 4Track construction – apparently this is the last section that needs finishing – all the rest is gravelled now

Track 3Panorama of the works

Track 2Just three heaps of gravel to relocate

Track 1Once all the gravel is down – then it needs a tarmac surface and then it will be open!

Once completed it will then be possible to cycle up both sides of the Exe Estuary on safe cycle trails and also then catch a ferry from Exmouth to Starcross to complete the circle. We are very lucky in Devon with our brilliant cycle trails – well done Devon County Council
