- ‘I think you will notice more courageous people take their bike further.’
- The nine-kilometer trail is anticipated to be finished by summer 2023.
A new nine-kilometer trail is joining the Greenwich part of P.E.I. The province says that National Park with the St. Peters place should promote more active transportation.
The provincial government has dedicated $4 million to the project, declared Monday. The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is donating $625,000.
The trail will head parallel to Long Bay. It will start from Route 16 — Northside Road — and join walkers and cyclists to the existing courses at Greenwich.
Jordan Bober, the executive director of Cycling P.E.I., said it’s promising news for cyclists.
“Any time I hear regarding a new active transportation path or track anywhere, I’m pleased to hear about that. It’s just something that lets more people get safely from one place to another,” said Bober.
“We know that that’s necessary, whether they’re going to work or shopping or if they’re just out, you know, enjoying the region recreationally, including tourists, as well as citizens.”
