Bristol Cycling Campaign has submitted a response in support of the consultation for a wider path and a new bridge at Merchant’s Dock, by the Pump House.

Our view is that this scheme will help make the centre of town more cycle friendly and will improve the existing Harbourside leisure route that is part of Quietway Q10 Promenade.

We are strongly of the view that providing Space For Cycling in Bristol means a network that is largely separated from people walking or driving, except where relative speeds and volumes are low. This should be considered a leisure focussed ‘quietway’ where separation is not required and we will be campaigning for the Council to produce plans for the F1 Cycling Freeway along Hotwells Road to the Portway as the quickest and most convenient cycling through route.
