Book Hive stay extended by popular demand

Work is about to start on a 700 metre long cycle track on Clarence Road, Redcliffe - which runs from Bedminster Bridge roundabout to Bath Road Bridge. It connects large residential areas to the developing Temple Quarter transport interchange and Local Enterprise Zone.

It's the first step towards the Avon Promenade, an attractive, continuous traffic-free walking and cycling route that will extend from Keynsham to Hotwells, following some of the popular waterways of Bristol.

Including specially designed ‘toby’ bollards to segregate the three-metre wide two-way track, the £380,000 project involves resurfacing, replacing a pedestrian crossing and the removal of pay and display parking meters.

Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson said:

“This scheme is exactly what we are going to see more of in Bristol as cycling and walking routes are improved so that anyone aged eight to 80 can feel that they have an option to travel in this way.

“We’ve used funds from the Sustainable Transport Fund and the Local Enterprise Zone as the first step towards making this part of Bristol a more accessible, safe and pleasant place to walk and cycle. I’ve seen this sort of cycle track used successfully in the Netherlands and in Copenhagen, this year’s European Green Capital, and separation really works where roads are busy and we can find the room".
