Lyde Road Strategic Cycleway


Lyde Road Strategic Cycleway

South Somerset District Council are working with Somerset County Council to create a Strategic Cycleway which connects Pen Mill Station to the A359, Mudford Road mainly using the route of Lyde Road. This route will provide access to safer walking and cycling paths in the East of Yeovil. It will connect to existing routes allowing access to a range of commercial and residential areas.

We are building this in three phases with the first of these planned to run from Howard Road to St Johns Road connecting to the existing cycleways provided in that area. We have already consulted those along the route and hope to start building in 2022.

The second phase will connect the first section from the Great Mead roundabout to the A359, Mudford Road. The final phase will connect from Howard Road via Camborne Grove to the station.  

This will in total provide a route which links up with a route direct into the town centre.
