Responding to consultations is an important part of what we do. There’s an active group pressing for Triple A quality (All Ages and Abilities) and for capacity that will encourage more people to cycle, and plan for the projected levels of 20% within 10 years.

    Space for Cycling Update: April 2019

    Silverthorne Lane and St Philips Marsh We have recently met developers and consultants about the Silverthorne Lane site and St Philip’s Marsh respectively, part of Temple Quarter.

  • Future Temple Quarter - will there be lots of cycling?

    Future Temple Quarter - will there be lots of cycling?

    Yes, Temple Meads station is at the centre, but Temple Quarter includes the whole surrounding area all the way to the St Philips Causeway. This is going to be a huge development, with or without the semi-mythical Bristol Arena. The Temple Quarter partnership have launched a survey to gather views before the next stage. As they say "Whether it’s how you access and use the station, provision of green and public space, affordable housing, jobs

  • Safe Cycling in NW Bristol ? Yes please

    Safe Cycling in NW Bristol ? Yes please

    Want to cycle from Clifton to Henbury along a safe segregated cycle route? No we're not joking; we don't mean messy, sub standard national cycle route 4 but a new route along Westbury Rd, Falcondale Rd and Passage Rd, protected from motors. There is currently a consultation on new bus lanes on the A4018, which don't seem popular locally. It's not ambitious on cycling either; a new route on the Downs and, perhaps, traffic reduction

  • Missing link to go ahead between Kingston Seymour and Weston-super-Mare

    Missing link to go ahead between Kingston Seymour and Weston-super-Mare

    We are very pleased that planning permission has been given to the missing link on the Clevedon & Weston cycle route. We strongly supported the application, as below, and the original 2012 one (Clevedon & Weston Cycle Route). It can be discouraging that things take so long, but good when progress is made. Note however that this proposal involves sharing the route with cattle, which is a big issue on the Festival Way. See below
