Work on a £910,000 cycle route which will improve access from Bathampton and Batheaston to Bath city centre has begun.

The new route will allow people to travel to and beyond the existing footpath, which currently leads to the A46 at Grosvenor Bridge East.

It will also be connected to National Cycle Route 3.

Bath and North East Somerset Council said the majority of the work would be completed this year.

The remainder is due to be completed in early 2014.

Caroline Roberts, cabinet member for transport, said: "Better cycle routes are one of the council's methods of increasing sustainable transport use, tackling congestion and improving air quality.

"More cycle improvement projects are planned, including Seven Dials, which will also encourage people to use bikes for their daily commutes and for leisure."

The project is being funded by the Local Sustainable Transport Fund and council money.
