The project forms part of a wider ‘cleaning up’ and interpretation project along the A66 corridor and neighbouring routes by the landowners, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council. It aims to involve community participation as part of the design and mitigate some of the negative visual effects of local industry, whilst interpreting the industrial and natural environment.  It provides new opportunities for increased access and viewing points to enable the river, wildlife and industrial sites to be more easily accessed and understood.

The project will be an integral element of the Landscape Partnership programme and in particular meets the opportunities for increased access and learning aim of Programme.
