Mike Presses for Cotford St Luke – Bishops Lydeard Cyclepath/Footway

From the many doorstep discussions I’ve had in recent weeks, it’s clear that there is a strong desire for better cycle/foot connections between Cotford and Bishops Lydeard.  Currently, the only real way to walk or cycle between the two is to use Dene Road and the A358, neither of which are safe or suitable for the purpose.  The route is particularly hazardous for pedestrians as there is no footway at all between the two villages.  I have made the connection of the two villages in this way a central plank of my agenda.  I understand that a route has previously been identified but, yet again, this appears to be an issue where our existing representatives have done an awful lot of talking with no action.  Time to give it the Rigby treatment.  Those who know me will tell you that once I get my teeth into something I don’t easily let go! 🙂
