Two new bridges have been given the go-ahead to be built along the Two Tunnels walking and cycling route in Bath.

The bridges will be built over Millmead Road and Monksdale Road in the city.

The Two Tunnels route is part of the charity Sustrans' project to develop walking and cycling links across the UK.

The path is a direct route between Bath and the Midford valley, more than two miles south of the city.

The plan, which has been approved by Bath and North East Somerset, is to build bridges at two junctions which are currently difficult to navigate for less mobile people and wheelchair users.

Sustrans, a UK alternative transport charity, is creating the new walking and cycling path from a four-mile stretch of disused railway line.
