Popular footpath from Teddington to Alstone improved
Regular walkers in the area have noticed the improvements Gloucestershire County Council has made to stiles along this popular public right of way.
Teddington and Alstone Parish Council requested the repairs after their meeting in January, and the county council has acted quickly to get the work done.
New treads have been fitted on the bridge behind the Teddington Hands, and three stiles have been repaired, with extra treads on some railway sleepers which cross a ditch. A brand new stile has also been installed.
Cllr Vernon Smith, local county councillor for and cabinet member for highways, "When Teddington and Alstone Parish Council met last month they discussed repairs that were needed to some of the stiles in the area. We've made the repairs, also putting in a brand new stile along one part for the route, and I'm delighted to hear that local people are noticing the difference already."
Jackie Broadbridge, local resident and chairman of Teddington and Alstone Parish Council said, "I walk along this route with my dog and the improvements to the stiles make a big difference. I'd like to pass on my thanks to all those concerned for a job well done."
