Resurfacing work on parts of the Strawberry Line is due to take place next week.
This is a very popular trail for cyclists, horse riders and those on foot and the section to be resurfaced is between the A370 at Station Road Congresbury and Nye Road in Sandford
The section between Honey Hall Lane and Nye Road will be closed for two days on Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 June for path improvements – widening the path and laying a completely new limestone dust surface. There will be a signposted diversion via Honey Hall Lane, Brinsea Batch, King Road, Church Lane, Churchill Green and Sandmead Road, re-joining Nye Road.
During the rest of the week there will be pothole repairs from Honey Hall Lane north to the A370 – this section will be open for use, but users are asked to follow signs and contractors’ instructions for personal safety.
The work is being carried out by MP & KM Golding Road Reclamation and this work is part of an ongoing maintenance arrangement. The council has been able to extend the works following the assistance and co-operation of Thatcher’s Cider which owns part of the section that will be widened and improved during the closure.
The council also wants to say a big thank you to the Strawberry Line Sustrans Volunteer Rangers who will be signposting the diversionary route organised by their new co-ordinator Adrian Read.
