Work to improve two sections of footpath to provide year-round access in Bradley Stoke’s Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve got under way on Monday 28th September 2020.
The initial work involves thinning some of the trees in the woodland, mostly ash trees affected by ash dieback.
Construction of the improved footpaths themselves is due to start on Monday 5th October.
A tree planting programme, later this year, will help mitigate for the losses caused by thinning.
Two existing ditch crossings will be altered to provide safer access for mobility scooters.
South Gloucestershire Council says it aims to complete the work by Saturday 31st October.
