Work to start on improving Bristol to Bath Railway Path
WORK is due to start on improving the Bristol to Bath Railway Path.
Bristol City Council will be undertaking extensive resurfacing, which has been funded with a grant from Sustrans and the Government's Links to Schools and Communities Programme.
The resurfacing will concentrate on sections of the path that have been damaged by tree roots and will stretch between Ridgeway Playing Fields in Speedwell and the end of the path in St. Phillips.
The path will be closed in sections to ensure the safety of path users and to allow the contractors carrying out the works a safe working environment.

A number of 24 hour closures will take place, with full signed diversions in place for pedestrians and cyclists.
Work will commence on Monday and last for around two weeks.
Motorists using roads adjacent and parallel to the Railway Path should expect a higher number of pedestrians and cyclists to be sharing routes between the March 19 and 30.
Adrian Roper, Sustrans regional director, said: "We're glad to be able to work in partnership with Bristol City Council on this project.
"We recognise the good work that Bristol is doing to promote walking and cycling in the city."
