About

Bristol has been awarded additional funding from the UK government to upgrade and extend walking and cycling routes across the city. With Council funding  included, a total of £19m has been allocated for projects from 2015 to 2018 in the Bristol area.

One of these routes is the Frome Greenway. We are working to improve the existing route section between Stoke Park and Frome Terrace. Improving facilities for pedestrians and cyclists along the Frome Greenway will help give communities in North East Bristol a better, healthier alternative for transport to get people to work or play all year round. We also want to provide an improved route along Blackberry Hill.

This will form part of a valuable link between the Frome Greenway and the Bristol-Bath Railway Path and help improve connections to housing, shops and the UWE Glenside Campus.

Frome Greenway Link

This important section will connect the North Fringe into the existing Frome Greenway route (Frome Valley), and into Fishponds via the UWE Glenside Campus.

The route consists of two elements:

  • On road section – links Stoke Park and the North Fringe to the Frome Greenway route
  • UWE Glenside campus section – connects into the above on-road section and connects cyclists directly into the UWE Glenside campus, and on towards Fishponds.

The route connects UWE’s Frenchay and Glenside campuses with a single route which is either off-road or using quiet residential streets.
