Cyclists and pedestrians will find it easier and safer to reach the centre of Bridgwater thanks to two new key routes opening this week.

The first involved widening a path and building a new bridge at Stockmoor Rhyne that will improve connections from the South of Bridgwater to the town centre. The narrow bridge on Showground roundabout has also been widened, creating a safe route linking the existing paths to the North and the South. 

Route two links the recently improved canal path to the town centre via Old Taunton Road and Blake Gardens. This has involved creating a new shared path through Blake Gardens, access to Broadway and new lighting in and around the subway. 

The two news routes are a significant development of The Bridgwater Way project aimed at transforming travel in the town. 

The project is funded by the Department for Transport and being delivered through a partnership of Somerset County Council, Sustrans and Sedgemoor District Council. 

TBW want to inspire and encourage residents who might be new to cycling or want to build experience to take up their range of services including cycle servicing, cycle training, travel coaching and more.
