this highways development presents a unique opportunity (in terms of funding and access to land) to work in partnership with the consultants, developers, local highway authority and Local Access Forum to ensure that existing Public Rights of Way are both protected and enhanced (by changing from Footpath (walkers) to Bridleway (walkers, cyclists, horse riders) or Restricted Byways (all non-motorised users). Also we wish to see that all possible new opportunities are taken to increase the PROW network in an inclusive way by the provision of new routes, both to provide circular routes, to provide links in broken networks, and to link villages and communities together, with safe crossing points. The standard has already been set with the A14 work from which much can be seen as good example and also much can be learnt in terms of mistakes made. We are pleased to see the same Highways England lead person is employed on the A428 as was on the A14.""
