Airport bus for village

VILLAGERS in Barrow Gurney look set to get a bus service to Bristol Airport from next month.

The Bristol Flyer would stop on the A38, at the end of Hobbs Lane, for passengers going to the airport or into Bristol.

Parish council chairman Eric Gates said: “The significance of the stop is it will provide safe pedestrian access from the centre of the village.

“The parish council is working to gain better access for pedestrians along the A38 for the benefit of the community at Naish Lane.”

The proposal is awaiting approval from the traffic commissioners but if given the go ahead will start from June 25.
