Public meeting to discuss safety in Keynsham High Street

Keynsham High Street

A public meeting will be taking place next Tuesday to discuss the ongoing safety problems in the High Street since the controversial £1.5m refurbishment.

The various kerb levels lane next to the new cycle lane have caught out dozens of unsuspecting pedestrians, with several breaking bones.

People are still falling despite remedial work that was carried out by Bath & North East Somerset Council last month to improve the visibility of the cycle lane, including laying red Tarmac.

The meeting is being held at the Fear Hall at 5pm on Tuesday and all views are welcome.

Keynsham councillor Alan Hale, who has been a fierce critic of the way B&NES Council has handled the situation with the High Street, tonight confirmed he would be attending the meeting and said he had asked the council’s executive member Manda Rigby and the senior manager for the project to attend to answer questions.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 10: The date of the meeting has been postponed.
