Yate Spur cycle path update

Work on the section of the cycle path between Nibley Lane and the Shire Way railway viaduct (pictured above) was completed earlier this summer. It'll make more sense, of course, when it's joined up at the ends.

In recent weeks, it’s been confirmed that South Glos has secured £400,000 for further work this financial year.

In September the council will be starting a consultation on a pedestrian refuge at the Nibley Lane junction, the path under the viaduct and the Shire Way section. The council is also working towards securing land for the Westerleigh Road to Broad Lane section.

While it’s good to see further progress being made, more funding will be needed in future years for the construction of the path between Dodmoor Crossing and Nibley Lane, to complete the "Westerleigh cycle bypass". This is arguably one of the parts of the route that will bring the biggest safety improvements.

We need to keep up the pressure to make sure this important cycle route is completed. If you haven’t done so already, you can sign our petition at
