This is the bike path between the MOD Abbey Wood site on the West and the new "Lockleaze North" development to the east.
The MOD are about to add 600 new desks to the site, with an extra 2200 scheduled to arrive over the next four years. To mitigate congestion in the area, there is this bike lane, the Abbey Wood station -which has excellent connections to everywhere but suburban Bristol- and plans for nearby housing.
Here is the nearby housing; expansion of this site appears to have halted. If that is the case, these houses will be less part-of-a-village and more middle-of-nowhere. They will be handy for the MOD, UWE, HP, and other North Fringe employers.
To the south, there are the local rugby clubs and a nice route to town. This is the West side of the railway line, which Josh Hart is proposing to turn into the North Bristol Cycle Expressway. If this doesn't come about, if the cycle city plans do not lead to a step change in commuting, then the migration of 2800 MOD jobs to the area is going to add even more congestion to the A4174 ring road/M32 route -though not as much as if anyone were to extend the ring road round to the south.
