FUNDING has been made available to make improvements on Ashley Hill, Bristol City Council has revealed.
The money, available from the Active Neighbourhood Transport Grant, will be put towards calming traffic, and improving pedestrian and cyclist facilities along the road.
By reducing the carriageway width between Hurlingham Road and Chesterfield Road, the council's highway services team aims to reduce the speed of traffic.
Furthermore, by removing the narrow pedestrian island and introducing a traffic signal crossing, officers hope to improve the pedestrian and cycling experience.
Consultation is being held for residents and businesses in the neighbourhood to comment on the proposals before further detailed work is undertaken.
Locals are encouraged to make any comments by December 5.
Results of the consultation are expected by mid-January, with feedback from the council expected at the beginning of February.
