Update on cycleway link from Yate to the Bristol - Bath path and on pedestrian link to Westerleigh

Briefly, there has been no physical progress on the cycleway link because Network Rail haven't yet signed consents. Believe it or not, it's because of the main line electrification! They are considering using some of the land near the oil depot for training concerned with the electrification work, but they don't yet know how much land they need.

All other landholder agreements have been finalised for the first phase from Coxgrove Hill to Broad Lane, and land negotiations for the Broad Lane – Shireway second phase have just started.

The Westerleigh Link project from the Nibley Lane corner to Westerleigh would cost over £50,000 and therefore will be considered for inclusion in South Glos's Local Transport Capital Programme for 2012/2013.

The next meeting of the Joint Cycleway Group will be in mid-April. Watch this space, as they say...
