Thanks to everyone who voted for Cycle Hayling in last year’s ‘approved by you’ ballot, we have been able to replace all the fading cycle map sign boards.
On the left you can see Wilf Forrow who has led our efforts. He’s standing next to the replacement sign at the south end of the Billy Trail.
Here’s a comparison of an old sign with the new one at the Ferry Inn…
You can see how much they’ve faded over time. The new signs have better UV protection so should last longer.
And here’s the new sign at the top of the Billy Trail.
We’ve got two further signs to display and we’re looking to place them at Beachlands and Eastoke. We’ll let you know when they go up.
The new signs come with a supporting web page – designed for use with smart phones – to provide visitors with more information than we can show on the maps.
Thanks again to all our supporters for voting for us – and to Hampshire County Council for running the ‘Approved by you scheme’.
