3,2,1 and liftoff for the Two Tunnels Project!

We're pretty overwhelmed by the support shown this afternoon, people braving what turned out to be ... actually not too muddy and a glorious sunny day for good measure ... all there to witness the start of work on the Two Tunnels route.

A very impressive digger had been brought to the site by the contractors Hope and Clay, forming a backdrop to the ceremony. Nigel produced a smashing engraved ceremonial spade. The CE of Sustrans was along to help launch the start of work on the project - along with its engineer.

And many many many supporters arrived from all points of the compass. Brilliant!

For good measure, the photographer from the local paper - the Bath Chronicle - and then a film crew from BBC Points West too - we had a good couple of minutes on that - and also a mention on ITV local news as well. All good news for something that will improve Bath as a liveable city no end. We'll have more photos and hopefully some video on the web site very shortly.

Great to see the work has finally started! I can't wait to walk or cycle from Bath to Wellow. Good luck to all concerned.
