ITEM Originator Area/Ward Scheme Scheme details (provide enough detail for the scheme to be assesed for feasibility and cost) Option B -2015/16 cost 2015/16 Comments
C1 AS District Wide General Cycle parking   20 Implement  
C2 NJ General Small signing issues Small pot of funding for ad hoc signing and information boards etc 10 Implement  
C4 AS K&A towpath Grosvenor Bridge to K&A canal shared use path and London Road improvements-Phase 1 Phase 1’s improvements to the links to/from Grosvenor Bridge including removal of hatching from centre of carriageway between Grosvenor Bridge Road and Gloucester Road to provide sufficient width to provide traffic free facility eastbound. To the west explore permissive path along floodplain at Kensington Meadows and link through to Morrisons and link north through car park (to be reconfigured – use Hereford Rd as example). This allows the route to be linked to the regeneration scheme where there is sufficient highway width to provide a two-way facility on south side of road as far as Cleveland
Place junction.
100 Design and implement in phases Also need to establish landowner of one section up to K&A canal. Cycle track order or Dedication Agreement, design and path reconstruction. Works include: detailed design, consultation, costing and request for funding for future construction of path.
C5 PB SE Bath Bathwick Hill toucan @ Copseland – construction Contribution to funding on 15/16 capital programme 40 Implement Contribution
C6 ADC Central Bath Powlett Rd/Bathwick Street Link Progress Powlett Road Cycle Track Order 2015/16 10 Progress CTO  
C7 RS/JFT K&A towpath K&A towpath – improve surface from Warminster Road to Grosvenor Bridge path Resurfacing towpath 60 Design and implement in phases If more funding available for construction then consider increasing budget.
C8 AS Newbridge Locksbrook Road Trading Estate access to 2 Tunnels Sustrans carrying out feasibility.
If can go through car park low cost solution.
If ramp more funding required.
10 Implement  
  Sustrans MSN Radstock to Thicket Mead Improved surfacing and signing. Include 5 Arches link signing. 100 Design and implement in phases The route follows the Norton Radstock Greenway an
existing traffic free route. It acts as an east/west spine
and could be improved by better access to adjacent
locations and an improved surface.
C13 Sustrans Keynsham/ Saltford Bath Road shared use path Aims-links between Saltford and Keynsham, particularly for Wellsway school, link Keynsham BBRP. One section due to be constructed this year and Toucan.
Other phases require footway widening and resurfacing which could be done in phases.
50 Design and implement in phases  
D1 PB Widcombe Lower Oldfield Road Crossing Pedestrian survey was carried out on Lower Oldfield Road would justify an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing.
