Develops transport

By establishing alternative means of transport and opening up routes and trails across the landscape, the Great Atlantic Way proposal will encourage the visitor to leave the car at selected “gateways” and use a network of more environmentally-friendly options ranging from the new hydrogen powered or electric vehicles to even-healthier walking. Group transport will be part of the solution and this in particular will help the development of a community transport service.

A proposal for developing the strategy for Cornwall and the Great Atlantic Way has been prepared by the leading transport experts who created the transport plan for London’s successful Olympic bid – Steer Davies Gleave. That proposal is currently being studied by Cornwall County Council.

The Great Atlantic Way creates an opportunity for public and private partnership to deliver an innovative and sustainable transport solution for rural North Cornwall, extendable to the rest of the county and beyond.
