Cycle track beside the bypass is a good idea
I CONGRATULATE Keynsham Town Council for offering their unanimous support for a cycle path running alongside the Keynsham bypass in their meeting on September 17. Although appearing a little bizarre of the council to encourage people to bypass the town, they recognised the safety need for cyclists venturing down such a fast and busy road.
Following the cycle path which runs parallel to the dual carriageway from Twerton to the Globe, at Corston, this would be another significant step in creating a safe route along the entire A4 from Bristol to Bath and would mean a complete path from Satlford right into the centre of Bristol. Following a question I asked of the Bath and North East Somerset Cabinet, I know that Sustrans have been appointed to conduct a cycle audit across the region which will include three public consultation events and a web-based mapping tool in order to find out the preferred route of any new cycle paths. It is my hope that through this audit, it will become clear that a cycle path along the Keynsham Bypass would be a popular and safe choice which may give access to the recent government allocation of £150 million for safer cycle tracks.
