DETAILS of three schemes providing paths to Darlington schools were revealed yesterday.

The borough council has secured £100,000 from the Government for the schemes.

There will be a link from Hummersknott School to Cleveland Terrace via the improvement of the pathway on Cemetery Lane. The existing track surface will be improved and a crossing installed on Carmel Road North, at the end of Cemetery Lane.

A link running from the Red Hall estate to the River Skerne and a pathway from Hurworth to Neasham are also planned.

The latter will improve safety for pupils travelling to schools in Hurworth.

Nick Wallis, the council's cabinet member for transport, said: "The improvement works and new routes will provide pupils, and members of the public, with enhanced and safer pathways to use to get to and from school."
