A BOARDWALK in Winnersh was officially opened this week.

The £35,000 project was constructed to provide a better connection between the business park and the rest of the Winnersh community.

Cllr Parry Batth, executive member for environment and leisure, who officially opened the boardwalk, said: "I am delighted to officially open this fantastic addition to Winnersh Meadows, the latest example of infrastructure we are putting in place to support more sustainable travel options across the borough.

"We are very grateful to Frasers Property for working in partnership with us and funding this important project that will benefit so many."

The boardwalk itself is made almost entirely of recycled plastic and has replaced the original boardwalk, which was closed years ago due to wood rot.

"It is important to us that people can use the area to its full potential and improving the pathways has allowed this to happen."
