We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) set up to campaign for the re-purposing of this former 18-mile-long disused railway closed during the Beeching cuts in the 1960s. The first stage of the project is specifically to raise funds for a programme of PR, education and information to support the campaign through too fruition. If we are successful in the campaign, we will move to the next stage of fund raising to actually carry out the work to clear and re-open the path from the top of the island in Amlwch to Gaerwen providing an uninterrupted 18-mile-long path without any road crossings. This unique facility would provide a safe environment for those returning to cycling, new cyclists who have taken the pastime up during the Covid19 crisis, walkers, runners, families, adaptive & disability cycling. This project offers a unique opportunity to create a green corridor crossing the island benefiting both the island residents and the environment as a whole

What we'll deliver:

  • commission a web site for the campaign
  • commission the design of the campaigns logo and infographics
  • commission a promo film of the route of the multiuser pathway
  • produce printed & web information for publicity purposes

Why it's a great idea:

An 18 mile long traffic free environment for cyclists walkers, runners, adaptive cyclists, families and equestrian users. Health benefits from a tie up with green prescribing from the local Anglesey Health Cluster. The connecting up of a number of small businesses along its route: cafes, pubs, cycle hire and repair. The scheme will also open up a green corridor across the island passing by two lakes with SSSI designations and wetland, potential for tree planing and increased biodiversity though farmland and villages it passes by. During the Covid19 crisis there has been an increase in staycations and this facility as well as the huge benefits for island residents woudl provide a conduit across the island for eco tourism and less reliance on cars between holiday destinations and places of interest.

Steps to get it done:

  • Year 1 PR and education campaign to allow the re-purposing of the route
  • Year 2 commence opening the route between Amlwch and Rhosgoch
  • Year 3 commence opening the route between Rhosgoch and Llanerchymedd
  • Year 4 commence opening the route between Llanerchymedd and Llangefni
  • Year 5 commence opening the route between Llangefni and Pentre Berw
  • Year 6 commence opening up connecting paths to Llyn Alaw and Llyn Cefni

We initially wish to start off by making an application for funds to set up a dedicated web site, information film and infographics to help promote the project.
