VALENCIA´S Provincial Council is studying the possibility of creating a cycle path connecting Carcaixent in Valencia with Gandia and Denia.
The Diuptacion has commissioned the Foundation of the Spanish Railways (FFE) to draft a report on the feasibility of running the path alongside the old Carcaixent-Gandia-Denia railway line.
The cycle path will be 66 kilometres long and pass through the Valencian municipalities of Alzira, Benifairo de la Valldigna and Tavernes de la Valldigna before reaching the Safor region, serving as a link between Gandia and the capital of the Marina Alta.
The Diputacion’s Deputy of Environment Josep Bort said that the path will be “a key transforming axis for the municipalities, which will facilitate the connection between the different rural nuclei.”
Bort said that, once implemented, “the axis will improve the quality of life in the municipalities through which it passes and new employment opportunities will be created thanks to the economic activities associated with the use of bicycles and the non-motorised development of the territory.”
Once the report has been drafted, the Provincial Council will use it to begin the design of the cycle path for works to begin in 2018.
