Elm Lane Traffic Calming

Closed 16 Mar 2022

Opened 23 Feb 2022


Funding has been allocated by the Local Area Committee to provide traffic calming and footway improvements at the junction of Elm Lane and Lower Redland Road.

Bristol City Council would like to invite you to comment on the design we are proposing to deliver with this funding.

The proposal is for footway buildouts and a raised table to be installed at the junction of Elm Lane and Lower Redland Road, to improve the crossing point at this location. It is intended that these measures will improve safety by controlling vehicle speeds and improving visibility between pedestrians and other road users.

The buildouts are on both sides of the road and cover the entrance to the junction. The raised table will cover the whole length of the buildout. The crossing will include tactile paving, road markings and bollards which are in style of the ‘Bristol Pencil’. The double yellow lines, no waiting restrictions, will be altered to accommodate the new buildout layout.

As part of the proposed works, additional lining and signing will be included on Elm Lane to help reduce speeds.

Why your views matter

Before finalising our design, it is important that we hear from you at this stage, so that we can use your comments to produce a final scheme design which is both effective and tailored, where possible, to the needs of the local community.

Please review the related documents carefully, then submit your comments (the link for the online survey can be found in the box marked 'Give Us Your Views').


What happens next

All suggestions and comments received will be taken into consideration and may be included in the final design of the scheme.
