A safer route between Combe Down and the University of Bath
We are planning to make it easier and safer to travel between Combe Down and the University of Bath.
How we will improve safety
We plan to make the busy road junctions at each end of Copseland safer for cyclists to use. The planned new zebra crossings will incorporate a cycle lane which is separate from the striped pedestrian part of the crossing, improving safety for both cyclists and pedestrians.
We plan to ban left turns for motor vehicles out of Copseland into Claverton Down Road, so we can safely locate the crossing as close to the junction as possible. This should mean it's possible to cross straight to and from Quarry Farm Lane.
In North Road, we plan to modify the pavement, to provide a short section of shared use cycle path. This should enable cyclists to get from North Road into The Avenue or Soldier Down Lane, to get to and from the university.
Separating cyclists from pedestrians
Our proposals also include the creation of a new cycle path along the existing closed section of The Avenue, between its junctions with Beech Avenue and Norwood Avenue. You can read more about this plan in our City centre to University of Bath project pages
