Pedestrian/cycle bridge

A new bridge across the A379 will be delivered for pedestrians and cyclists. This will be located close to the school and community facilities and will provide a dedicated crossing across the road. At school start and finish times, it is expected that lots of people will be crossing the road, so a bridge has been proposed. Crossings of the road in other locations will be included in the proposed junctions.

The county council has been undertaking work to inform the expected design of the bridge. The principle of this piece of infrastructure is included in planning permission for the housing development, but will be subject to a new, detailed application in due course.
