Work to make safety improvements to a public right of way that joins Crag Lane in Killinghall have been completed using funds allocated by Cllr Michael Harrison from his North Yorkshire County Council locality fund. The lane has always been a popular walking route but, whilst it might appear to be a quiet lane, it has a high level of authorised local traffic as well as it often being used as an illegal cut through when there are roadworks in Killinghall.
Crag Lane is increasingly being used by parents and children as a walking route to the primary school following the housing development on Cautley Drive being completed. Specific concerns had been raised about the steps and gate that lead from the PROW on to the lane. Works completed have included cutting back the hedges to improve visibility splays, resetting of the stone steps and a new gate.
