Making Bristol better for cycling

Consultation response to Ashton Sidings proposal

We’ve made a response to the proposals for a large development on the Former Railway Depot, Clanage Road, also known as Ashton Sidings.

Response to Consultation

Bristol Cycling Campaign

Former Railway Depot, Clanage Road 

REF:20/01655/F 

20th May 2020,

Bristol Cycling Campaign object to the above application for the following reasons – 

  • The proposed diversion of the existing Festival Way Cycle route is less direct and more convoluted than the existing route.
  • The proposed ramp and the proximity to the proposed steps introduce unnecessary conflict between pedestrian (both users of Festival Way and residents) and cycle movement through the site.
  • The width of the shared cycle and footway through the site appears to be inadequate. 
  • The crossings over the roads do not provide priority for cycles or pedestrians.
