A review has been called for of a cycle route between Sudbury and Great Cornard following complaints about its safety.

Cyclists and pedestrians have both voiced concerns over the path, which runs along Cornard Road and was paid for using money donated to the town by Sainsbury’s.

Jack Owen, a town councillor, said it was unclear which side of the pavement cyclists should take as there were no markings.

“It is a free-for-all and cyclists are worried because they do not want to hit anyone,” said Mr Owen during a town council meeting last week.

“An officer from Suffolk County Council needs to go down there, because people are scared to use it. It’s madness.”

John Sayers, county councillor for Sudbury, said he would report the comments to the county council.
