BaNES Council and CRT have made it clear that despite a 6-month Traffic Regulation Order to close the towpath during works to construct a new cycle path surface, boaters will still be able to moor their boats.

The deadline for the consultation about BaNES Council’s plans to upgrade the towpath along the K&A between Sydney Gardens and Bathampton is 11th September. There is an online questionnaire and detailed information about the Council’s plans here http://www.bathnes.gov.uk/services/your-council-and-democracy/consultations/kennet-and-avon-canal-towpath-improvement
Boater Pete Leigh has started a Facebook page to report incidents with speeding cyclists on towpaths. If you are on Facebook you can join the group Speeding Cyclists on Towpaths here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1630011633909618/.

Happy Xmas. Thanks for all the thorns u left on the towpath from us cyclists.
Now, I know that lots of you will be disappointed, you were hoping for some thorns of you own. Well, don’t worry, these were only the thorns collected between the George and A36 by our Creative Correspondent, there are lots more between Bath and Bradford. Simply cycle along there and you’re sure to be lucky enough to get some home with you.
These words will be contained in a description of almost any work carried out by British Waterways.
I walked 3 miles home tonight, bit chilly out. I should have cycled home but I had a puncture, another one.
Everyone I know who cycles, so most boaters, in the Limpley Stoke valley has had multiple punctures recently.
Because the organisation that can’t even think of a name for itself, had the hedgerow flailed and didn’t clear up the trimmings leaving the path strewn with thorns.
They have been notified. They have done nothing. Complaints have been made about this, there has been no reply yet because BW always take as long as they can to respond.
