Yate spur cycle path latest

The cycle path has been constructed from Coxgrove Hill (at the northern end of the existing Bristol to Bath railway path link) as far north as Westerleigh Road. On this section, between the M4 motorway and Westerleigh Road, there are further works to complete which include the installation of a footbridge at Folly Brook and minor works at the level crossing and the Network Rail car park. Officers are intending to install the bridge at Folly Brook next month, which will take about one week to complete. The works at the level crossing and Network Rail car park are subject to negotiations with Network Rail.

It is anticipated that the next phase of works from Westerleigh Road to Westerleigh village including the provision of a traffic island on Westerleigh Road will be constructed in 2013/14 (possible start date in June). The remainder of the route from Westerleigh village to Yate will be delivered when funding becomes available.

Unfortunately, there are no funds in 2013/14 to construct the fishing lakes route towards the Science Park even though planning permission has been given. Again, officers hope to secure funding in future years so that this route can be built.
