Tunnel Lights Plan on Hold


Daventry News -

Plans to help cyclists by putting lights inside a former railway tunnel have been scrapped.

Daventry District Councillors were considering making improvements to the 525 yard Kelmarsh Tunnel – which is now part of the Brampton Valley Way cycle route.

The £50,000 scheme would have seen lighting installed for riders and pedestrians – to improve safety on the former railway line between
Market Harborough and the edge of Northampton.

However, a full meeting of the Council has decided spending the money would be “unwise and premature” because there are now proposals to reopen the line.

The tunnel was previously used for trains between 1859 and 1981 – before being converted to a cycleway.
