Bristol to Bath Railway Path lighting consultation

This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.

Published: 30/05/2014

The lighting will be installed from Siston Hill roundabout to Mangotsfield Station, Mangotsfield Station to Station Road and from Station Road to the Bristol boundary.

The aim of this scheme is to improve visibility, encourage greater use of the path by cyclists and walkers, and to provide a greater sense of personal security for all users.

We propose using energy efficient LED lights positioned on 6 metre high columns that minimise any light spillage towards nearby land and properties. These lights would be switched off between 1am and 5am in accordance with the council’s part night lighting policy.

We are not proposing to make any changes to the current lighting arrangements in the Staple Hill tunnel.

These proposals are estimated to cost £125,000 and will be funded through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) and the council’s capital programme. If it is agreed that the proposals should go ahead, works are likely to start later this summer.

A copy of the plans are available to view or download online at: or alternatively you can view the plans at Staple Hill Library during normal opening hours.

This consultation is open now and runs until 30 June 2014.
