The Strawberry Line is one of North Somerset’s jewels.
I play an active role in supporting the campaign to extend the Strawberry Line along (or close to) the old railway line to Clevedon.
I attend quarterly meetings (chaired by Cllr Geoff Richardson) and regularly discuss progress with council officers and Yatton Parish Council.
- The first 720m stretch of the onward extension adjacent to the new Bloor Homes developments is near completion.
- Continuation under Lampley road bridge is also required to enable route to continue north towards Clevedon.
- The link from Yatton station to Arnolds Way will be considered next.
- Highways England has funded an initial survey to assess the suitability of allowing bikes to use a culvert to cross under the M5. (Due to high costs a new bridge is unlikely). This work could be completed by 2023.
