Bristol Shared Use Routes for People Walking and on Bicycles Policy

Bristol City Council’s policy on shared use has been superseded by new national guidance.

The statutory Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) sets a clear ambition to make cycling and walking the natural choices for short journeys or as part of a longer journey with supporting objectives to increase cycling and walking levels.

National guidance, Department for Transport, Local Transport Note 1/20, Cycle Infrastructure Design, supports the delivery of high-quality cycle infrastructure to deliver this ambition and objective; and reflects current good practice, standards and legal requirements.

Inclusive cycling is the underlying theme so that people of all ages and abilities are considered.
