Green light for changes to Muller Road junction
A consultation on proposed improvements and changes to Muller Road and streets which intersect with it is open for comments until Friday 28 January.
The proposals affect traffic flow at the Muller Road junction with Brent Road, Draycott Road, and the southeastern end of Springfield Avenue. Full information can be viewed on the Bristol City Council website www.bristol.gov.uk/streets-travel/traffic-regulation-orders-tros
Bishopston councillor Emma Edwards said: “We welcome the news that the work on Muller Road is finally approved and starting this year, we have been putting pressure on, especially regarding Springfield Road being closed to through traffic and traffic signals on Ralph Road. These are two issues that residents have been wanting for a while, to tackle the issue of ‘rat running’ and dangerous driving.
“While we welcome these updates we must also keep an eye on how they impact the streets around Muller Road. I would like to see a holistic approach, which also takes into account parking issues, traffic being pushed into other areas and active travel. I look forward to working with residents and officers to make sure the changes have the best outcomes and the least disruption to those who live in the area.”
