The document similarly talks of new walking and cycle paths; the BHS makes the same comment that these should become multi-user, and on the same grounds. The new pathways also particularly  need here to be linked to the good network of footpaths and bridleways on the Mendips, and also to the north towards Congresbury and Langford.  At present, vulnerable users, are forced onto roads that are already dangerous.  A particular difficulty is the B3133 Congresbury to Langford road, carrying far too much heavy traffic already and hazardous to drive, let alone walk, cycle or ride.  Another benefit of doing this would be improved facilities for tourism, whatever one's chosen method of transport.

Any new walking/cycling routes need to be multi-user.
