Creating a network of walking and cycling routes between Standish, Wigan and Ashton in Makerfield.

Extend the walking and cycling path on the disused railway line over the disused Whelly Viaduct, extend the cyclepath from Victoria Park to Ashton in Makerfield, and connect with improvements for pedestrians and cyclists planned to the A49 on the Eastern Gateway and the Road to Wigan Pier.
