Story

The existing busy stretch of the A378 between Curry Rivel and Langport is unsuitable for cyclists and pedestrians due to being very narrow in places and the volume and speed of traffic. Residents of Curry Rivel and surrounding villages rely on amenities in Langport and Huish Episcopi such as local shops and businesses, doctors, the library, the secondary school and Huish Leisure Centre, but the vast majority use their cars to travel there and back.

The need for an improved transport link is clear and the proposed project would bring a wide range of benefits to cyclists, pedestrians and the wider community, for example:

- an accessible, safe and traffic free path for cyclists and pedestrians

- Increased opportunities for exercise, contributing to a healthy lifestyle

- reduction in volume of traffic and dangerous emissions on this stretch of the A378

- Increased trade for local shops and businesses

a link to a possible future rail station at Langport

- a solution to the need for a safe route for students to get to the school, academy and leisure centre

The project is now being taken forward by a small group of volunteers who are investigating feasibility, possible routes for the path, and funding opportunities. As the grant has been awarded to the project on a matched funding basis, the group are now seeking financial and other support from a wide range of sources including councils, businesses and voluntary organisations, as well as the public.

We need to raise £5000 to cover the fees involved for the research and to produce a design and route that will attract government funding to build it

    We have secured a grant to identify a traffic free multi user cycle and footpath linking the village of Curry Rivel to Langport/Huish Episcopi to enable all groups of people to travel safely between those places. We have formed a small working group to take the project forward.
