Greenways

What is a greenway?

 We define greenways as traffic-free routes which are attractive, generally separated from traffic and continuous over obstacles and through road junctions. Quite typically greenways may run along old railways, canal towpaths, riverbanks, forest roads and tongues of open space leading into urban areas (Sustrans).
