Severnside Walking and Cycling

Sign up for news and information

We are working with partner agencies to significantly improve and upgrade the cycling and walking infrastructure around Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area (ASEA).

A consultation on the plans will run from 18 February until 29 March 2019 when we will be inviting people to have their say.

What are we proposing?

In conjunction with Sustrans and funded through Highways England’s Designated Fund for Cycling, Safety and Integration, the improvement package will support the development of a new junction on the M49 and the ASEA.

Our plans include improvements to National Cycleway Network Route 4 between Cribbs Causeway and Severn Beach as well as:

Improvements to be made in Severn Beach:

  • 20mph zone covering all of Severn Beach
  • Contraflow cycle lane
  • Improvements at bus stop at station
  • New zebra crossing outside Severn Beach Primary School
  • Road humps

Improvements to be made on A403/Western Approach Distribution Park:

  • Church Road, A403 bridleway upgrade to shared pedestrian/cycle/horse facility
  • A403/Govier Way crossing upgrade to parallel crossing for dual, segregated pedestrian/cyclist use
  • Upgrades to shared use path at Western Approach Distribution Park

Improvements to be made in Easter Compton:

  • Surfacing improvements at Farm Lane
  • Junction improvements at Bowstreet Lane/Farm Lane junction/Hollywood Lane junction
  • Possible closure of Hollywood Lane at either Bowstreet Lane or activity centre

Sustrans, with Mott MacDonald Sweco Joint Venture, completed a feasibility study and outline design for the scheme on behalf of Highways England which South Gloucestershire Council is taking forward to construction.
