Bristol Cycling Campaign member David Neale has produced another excellent and well worked out proposal (see also the Barrow Hospital plans). This one will provide a traffic-free walking and cycling link in Ashton Vale between the AVTM maintenance/cycle track, the Long Ashton P&R and Festival Way (AVTM is the Ashton Vale to Temple Meads part of MetroBus).

With the likelihood of more traffic congestion when the South Bristol Link road opens, the scheme should benefit increasing numbers of pedestrians walking between Long Ashton village and the Park & Ride. Note that it connects to the new spur connecting the park and ride to the South Bristol Link shared use path.

The plans were presented to the North Somerset Cycle Forum in April 2016. We hope this useful link can be part of future funding bids.
