Cycle Bath March Roundup

I thought I’d give a quick roundup of the things our group is involved in:

  1. Dave’s excellent post on Larkhall to Alice park is now a document sited in the planning application. I really hope it results in a good route through the site.
  2. There is a bus with a cycle rack on the front of it in Bristol! However until the Driver Vehicle Safety Agency get their hands on it, we’re not allowed near it. 😦
  3. Cycle City Ambition Grant Bath East proposed set of ideas are now ‘solidified’ and are being looked at by council officers to determine viability. Getting a child on a bike from Larkhall into the city centre safely apparently can be quite controversial [Bath Chron Article].
  4. The CCAG Bath East tour brought up an interesting question over the Hampton Row footbridge. The replacement has still not been designed. A wheelchair accessible bridge is possible. Chris and Frank well done for this one.
  5. The Bath Train Station manager and Southgate manager are on board with kitting out the tunnel under the station with more racks, probably a 100 of these, better lighting AND CCTV. CCAG money is potentially available for doing this.
  6. The river path will have some verge maintenance done on it, but tying down what that is is almost impossible. BaNES needs a path maintenance team kitted out with the tools needed to keep paths wide and clear.
  7. Projects that should be completed within the next two months:
    • Rainbow Woods
    • A4 Ramp
    • Widcombe
    • London Road
    • CCAG Seven Dials!
  8. Cycle Bath is in the process of becoming an associate member of FoBRA. We hope this is a fruitful relationship, particularly with the work we are doing with the CCAG money,

Apologies if I’ve missed you off. I know a lot goes on I hope the above gives some idea of the amount that people are doing. Be proud people. We’re helping to make this city a better, healthier, less congested place to live. Now get out on your bike and ride!
