'Dangerous' Oxford towpath gets new lease of life

A key stretch of canal towpath in Oxford has been resurfaced to allow cyclists and walkers to get around the city safely as part of a £158,000 project.

The stretch between Walton Well Road and Aristotle Lane to the north of the city was branded ‘rocky and a danger’ prior to the work, according to the Oxford Mail.

Funded by Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council and the Canal and River Trust, the path has been re-laid with fresh tarmac, which councillors hope will allow people to ‘enjoy the tranquility’ of the area.
