Two Tunnels cycle path moves step closer
The latest connection in the £1.9 million Two Tunnels cycle path has been swung into position.
The installation of the Millmead Road bridge is another step towards the reopening of the route, which has been funded by the National Lottery, B&NES Council and fundraising.
Last week, environmental charity Sustrans announced that the route, which will go through two reopened railway tunnels, would open on April 6 next year.
The four-mile shared path will run through Linear Park in Bath, through the disused Devonshire and Combe Down rail tunnels, and over the Tucking Mill Viaduct to Midford.

Adrian Roper, Sustrans' South West regional director, said: "It's great to see the next link of the Two Tunnels path being installed.
"This bridge will enable safe walking and cycling journeys across the busy Millmead Road and link the two sides of Linear Park."
Meanwhile, there is a cycling theme to the Christmas tree at the Victoria Art Gallery this year.
Every year the gallery's Friends support group invites a member of the city's creative community to make a unique tree for the attraction's entrance.
This year Bath Aqua Glass has made a metal and glass tree using bike wheels to reflect the success of British cycling over the past year.
The wheels are adorned with hand-blown glass baubles, glass icicles and some stained glass.
The wheels have been donated by Johns Bikes and Julian House's Bath Bike Workshop.
Baubles and icicles will be available for sale from the gallery shop.
The tree was unveiled by Box-based mountain bike champion Katy Curd.
