New footpath puts safety first in village
VILLAGERS in Barrow Gurney will soon be able to access village facilities more safely thanks to a new footpath.
Funding has finally been secured for a new path which will run along the A38 between Hobbs Lane and Naish Lane.
The new walkway will enable people to access amenities in the village more safely as well as the new bus service.
Parish council chairman Eric Gates said: “It’s part of the network of footpaths we’ve been trying to create.
“The first step was to a bus stop and now getting pedestrian access to it and extending links through the village.
You may also want to watch:
“People in the village only ever get together on rare occasions because there’s no way to get out and walk to the pub or amenities safely due to the weight of traffic.”
The footpath will cost �18,000 and is being jointly funded by The Bristol Airport Community Fund, North Somerset Council and Cemex Quarries.
