CYCLING routes and facilities in South Gloucestershire have been praised in a national survey.

Feedback from the highways and transportation survey led to South Gloucestershire Council getting the best score among local authorities for provision of services for cyclists.

It also had the highest score in a category for walking and cycling, as well as being regarded highly in the road safety, highways maintenance and community transport categories.

Mark King, the council’s head of street care, said: “We are delighted to be recognised in these awards, which reflect our efforts to improve our road and transport networks for all users.

“We have recently completed several major projects, such as improving facilities for cyclists at junction one of the M32 at Hambrook, which benefits commuter cyclists along the A4174 ring road corridor.

“We are also going to undertake more extensive gritting on the cycle path network this year, as we recognise it as being a very important commuter facility.”
