The Greater Bristol Cycling City project

Great letter in today's Post from Jeremy Gardner - over £20 million spent on cycling in the Bristol area and there are still many glaring issues with the existing cycle network.

I WISH to make a number of points about the Greater Bristol Cycling City project. I approach this issue as a cyclist and a pedestrian and I would like to see more done to improve safety for both...In short, the cycle and pedestrian network across Bristol and urban South Glos is still in need of investment but there is no need for grandiose projects like bridges and new routes just to show the councils can spend the cash. What we really need is for the network we already have to be sorted out and made it safer. The reason many people don't cycle is because of safety issues so that must be the first priority.
