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

    Update from the Page owner

    Thanks for all the donations so far - an amazing effort. Behind the scenes the working group have been busy looking at possible routes and speaking with landowners and neighbouring councils. If we can get to £5000 the research can really get underway to confirm a route, produce detailed plans and costings and make this vision a reality. We still have some way to go so please shout it out to your friends and neighbours! Donations can now be made by cheque or bank transfer.

    We'd love to be able to cycle to school and back safely. Many times I have been very worried for our safety due to the speed and unsafe passing of vehicles. Thanks for your efforts
