New Batheaston cycle route now open!

The new Batheaston cycle path finally opened this week after work on its construction was delayed by bad weather.

The new route – links with the Kennet and Avon canal towpath into Bath – and also involved building a bridge over the River Avon at Batheaston.

This led to the construction of a cycle / pedestrian path running through the meadows and linking to Mill Lane. It was started on 30th September 2013.

Following heavy rain and flooding during the winter months, work to complete the cycle-path resumed at the end of May.

It’s hoped there will also be landscaping and tree planting to follow.

I am hearing an official opening and photo-call is being scheduled for 9.30am on Tuesday, 15th July.
