On Tuesday 9th November, between 3.30 pm and 6.30 p.m. in Curry Rivel Village Hall, Curry Rivel Parish Council will unveil the initial findings from a project to establish a family friendly, traffic safe cycle footpath to link Curry Rivel to Langport and Huish Episcopi.
These findings highlight much needed improvements to road safety in and around the village.
The study is being funded through a combination of local supporters and Councils and the Somerset County Council Climate Emergency Fund.
Everyone is invited to view and comment on the options under consideration and speak with the advisers, PJA Ltd, and members of the Working Group.
This is an important first step toward active travel in our beautiful village. There are few if any alternatives for families to accessing the schools, shops and leisure facilities at Langport and Huish Episcopi other than by car or risking the dangerous main A378.
A multi-user path that is largely off road will bring many benefits especially to health, wellbeing, and the environment by encouraging exercise and reducing vehicle journeys. We have engaged with local landowners who have been very supportive and local schools, businesses and the leisure centre are equally keen for the project to succeed.
Come along and let us know what you think!
