Bristol Streets - A37/A4018 Transport Corridor Improvements

Page 1 of 8

Closes 11 Sep 2020

Introduction

We want to hear your ideas for improvements to the A37/A4018 transport corridor. A transport corridor is a key route that lots of people use to travel along, for example to get to work, for leisure and to get to school. This route starts in Stockwood and travels along the A37 through Knowle and Totterdown into the central area calling at Temple Meads. It then heads north along the A4018 and travels into Henleaze, Southmead and Henbury before arriving at Cribbs Causeway. This is the route of the number 2 bus.

This project aims to greatly improve walking, cycling and public transport infrastructure along this route and will focus on the areas where the congestion is an issue such as on A37 Wells Road, A4018 Whiteladies Road and in the centre.

It is part of a wider project which will look at eight routes across the city over the next 10 years.

Improvements will focus on pedestrians, cyclists and bus users and will look to achieve:

  • Better pedestrian environments providing safe crossing points and attractive streetscapes
  • Reallocation of road space for cyclists and buses to encourage more active travel
  • Bus infrastructure improvements to help the buses move quickly through the traffic improving journey times and reliability. 

By implementing changes and providing a better travelling experience for those on sustainable transport modes more people may choose to make the switch from car use, which will help reduce congestion and improve air quality.  

Bus travel and the emerging Bus Deal

Over the next 10 to 15 years Bristol and the West of England authorities have committed to developing and improving bus services as a priority for the city in partnership with First West of England. 

At the current time West of England authorities are working with bus operators on a recovery plan once travel restrictions and social distancing due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, are relaxed.  First West of England have committed to a future Bus Deal with the West of England Combined Authority and Bristol City Council so that the city and bus operators can work together to improve journey times, increase passenger numbers and expand the network. This project will support that partnership.

Let us have your ideas

We would like your views on how the A37/A4018 corridor could be improved for walking, cycling and bus travel. Your suggestions will help us design proposals that will work for everyone.

We are asking for your views on what improvements could be made along the whole route and specifically at seven different places along the route.
