Cycle route completed by Christmas
THE Nailsea to Bristol cycle path is due to be completed by Christmas.
Work on the final section of the route, between Cambridge Batch and Wild Country Lane in Long Ashton, is due to start early next month.
The project is being funded by the National Lottery, via Sustrans, as part of the Connect2 project and is expected to cost �180,000.
North Somerset Council’s executive member for strategic planning, highways and economic development, Cllr Elfan Ap Rees said: “I am delighted that we have reached this final stage of what at times has been a challenging project.
“Our attention will now turn to developing a cycle and pedestrian link between Weston and Clevedon via the old railway line that used to connect the two towns many years ago.
