WALKERS and cyclists could benefit from an improved route following talks between a councillor and a supermarket.
Meltham Greenway, which runs between Morrisons and Huddersfield Road was opened in June.
Kirklees Council spent £200,000 on the one-and-a-half-mile track for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
However, part of the route near Morrisons involves either climbing 70 steps or walking along a rough track.
Holme Valley North councillor Royston Rogers (pictured) met supermarket representatives this week to discuss the problem.
He said: “It looks as though Morrisons are going to pay for a proper footpath and cycleway from Near Lane down to The Cobbles. Horses would be able to be led by the rein.”
Clr Rogers hopes the work can begin in September.
He said: “At the moment it’s a rough track which isn’t suitable for people with pushchairs. These are the finishing touches to make the path more accessible.”
