First Linking Up project opens in Pembrokeshire

Sustrans have announced that the first phase of a scheme to link two Pembrokeshire towns with an active travel route has officially opened.

The 17-kilometre route between Narberth and Haverfordwest incorporates traffic-free sections and quiet roads and follows existing highways, tracks, bridleways and public footpaths.

The scheme is part of a larger project called Linking Up, which is improving connections between eight rural communities across Wales and the National Cycle Network. These new links will provide opportunities for local people to access jobs, services and tourist destinations using active transport.
