There is a good bridleway network on Backwell Hill but it is difficult to access due to the problems crossing the busy A370.  The same goes for the network of bridleways on Cleeve Hill.  Consequently, much care should be given to infrastructure that will allow all vulnerable road users to cross the A370 and access that network.  At the same time, any new walking/cycling paths should be dedicated as multi-user to ensure maximum use – and safety.  Particular care should be made to ensure that new build areas are linked also to the Festival Way path through to Bristol.  This will also help to encourage more people to use it.

Summary
Much care should be given to infrastructure that will allow all vulnerable road users to cross the A370 and access the Bridleway network.
