Dear Gloucestershire County Council,

There is a current TRO on plans for a Shared Use Footway / Cycleway on A46 Shurdington Road & Kidnappers Lane.

Published documents include only a brief overview of the site, from which it is impossible to understand the scheme and how far it deviates from current government safety standards by using a narrow shared path. More detailed plans exist which have been shared with some groups but not the public. These are vital to understand the appropriateness and safety of the scheme.

I would like to request the latest version of the detailed plans which accompany this TRO, including those that show any proposed changes to lane widths, pavement widths and any protection for vulnerable users.

I would also like to request the road safety audit for the scheme.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Chiswell

Gloucestershire CC, Gloucestershire County Council
