As the airport expands, so will the traffic around it, the more so as the airport is planning for significantly increased parking. In accommodating this expansion, NSC needs again to ensure that the existing rights of way network on routes around the airport is not adversely affected.  It should be incumbent upon the airport to improve rights of way around it to make them safer;  this particularly applies to crossing points over major roads (A38, A370).  By the same token, it should be possible to develop a link from Felton Common through to Cleeve Hill, where the Brockley Combe Road is now so busy it is almost impossible to cycle, and certainly, to ride.
