Getting from A to B in our city - or not?

October 26 2018

The city council is keen to hear the views of people in Bishopston, Cotham, Redland and St Andrews about their new Transport Strategy.

 A vision for improving transport in Bristol over the next twenty years has been launched in a bid to tackle congestion and transform how people move around the city.

The draft Bristol Transport Strategy sets out how Bristol City Council plans to tackle challenges affecting journeys such as traffic congestion, growth in housing and jobs, inequality and health problems caused by inactivity and air pollution.

Members of the public are invited to give their views on the strategy and choose their transport priorities for Bristol through a simulator tool, which outlines the pros and cons for a range of projects. 

Some of the approaches earmarked in the strategy which could help citywide movement include a mass transit scheme, such as underground or tram, better bus and rail services, safer walking and cycling routes and investment in technology, such as smart phone apps to help people plan journeys.

The consultation and simulator are open until 2 November 2018. Please go to: www.bristol.gov.uk/transportstrategy. Paper copies of the consultation are also available in libraries.
