Cycle/footbridge Feasibility Study Consultation - Final Report

Rate this item
(19 votes)

We are very grateful to all those who took the time to complete the ballot paper and give very helpful feedback in response to the public consultation on the cycle/footbridge proposal to connect Lower Sunbury with the Thames Path National Trail at Walton (see article of 22nd March and autumn 2014, spring and AGM 2015 newsletters).

We are delighted to say that an astonishing total of 911 local residents responded to the feasibility study's options. Overwhelming support for the proposal was shown by 92.9% respondents with 2.9% against. 4% were undecided or did not make their preference clearly.

We are indebted to the sponsorship of a private donor who funded the reputable firm, Cratus Communications, to conduct the public consultation on our behalf.

    Has the existing bridge from the island to the Weir Pub side been surveyed for suitability for Pushed / Motorised Wheelchairs, and Baby Carriages ?
    If found unsuitable a second Bridge would be required.
    Alternatively one large bridge to span the island would be the answer but at massive cost.
    One other observation is the river at the Flower Pot Green site is wider than the other proposed sites.
    Last thought I believe this site is a protected site in that Buildings etc cannot be built here, would that not apply to a Bridge structure?

    Is there any update on the footbridge from sunbury to walton?

    My only way to get to Walton is cycling; Fordbridge Road is totally unsuitable for cycling, narrow, busy, no cycle lane, dangerous. At Marshall's Roundabout going towards Sunbury I think it indicates that cycles can use the footpath but it is too narrow and often made worse by bushes. A cycle/foot bridge at Sunbury would be a big improvement.

    As your County Councillor I am definitely in favour of this and am working with Surrey CC Cabinet Member Mark Nuti who is overall responsible for YourFundSurrey to see if we can make the funding work

    Definitely in favour of a pedestrain footbridge to connect Lower Sunbury with the Thames Path.
    I cannot see anything formal recently so perhaps someone can let us know the current status of this proposal.
    Thanks

    A new bridge from Sunbury to Walton is a great idea. important to ensure any bridge is high enough not to obstruct the navigation. Note EA recommendation of at least 5.92 metres clearance above water level.

    definitely a bonus to local areas and a much needed route via foot/bike to elmbridge .
    Totally agree
