Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 03 February 2020
From Andrew Youngs


I am concerned about arrangements for pedestrians and cyclists crossing Royal Portbury Dock Road once the off-road cycle route is diverted from under the road bridge to climb up the embankments to cross the road. Royal Portbury Dock Road is extremely busy and carries a high proportion of heavy lorries. Such high traffic levels present a significant danger to foot and bike users wishing to cross the road. Particularly a danger to children on bikes. Liaison with the highway authority to provide a suitable controlled crossing is essential.
