Zetland Road/Redland Road/South Road - Mini Roundabout Improvement - UPDATE

Closed 18 Dec 2020

Opened 18 Nov 2020

Results updated 7 Jul 2021

Consultation on the revised design (please see attached drawings for details) for this site, resulted in the following findings:

  • 99 responses to this consultation were received in total.
  • The catchment for this consultation included Cotham Gardens School and a large number of parents whose children attend the school responded.
  • Of the 99 responses received,
    • 60 (60.61%) expressed support for the scheme as proposed,
    • 22 (22.22%) expressed an objection to the scheme as proposed and
    • 17 (17.17%) neither explicitly offered support nor objected to the proposals.

Since the scheme has received overall support and has the support of the local councillors, we are now proceeding with the legal element of the scheme. The one-way, speed cushions and changes to parking restrictions which will be required to deliver this scheme are all subject to a statutory process which can take 6 to 12 months to complete.

This statutory process requires that a final opportunity for submitting objections and comments on the proposals is provided. This page will be updated again when the statutory consultation is open. Site notices will be posted to advise local stakeholders that the statutory consultation process is taking place. A notice will also be placed in the local press.




Bristol City Council has allocated funding for the improvement of road safety – with emphasis on the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, at the mini roundabout which forms the junction between Zetland Road, Redland Road and South Road.

The scheme aims to make the area safer for pedestrians and cyclists, given the history of collisions involving cyclists and the proximity of the primary school on Elmgrove Road. It is also intended that the scheme will help to redirect inappropriate through traffic away from Redland Road and onto more suitable routes.



Following the first round consultation, a number of issues and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) were raised. These questions and our responses to them can be found in the attached 'FAQ.pdf' document, which is located in the Related Documents section of this webpage.

It has been decided that a second round of public consultation will be undertaken to assess citizens' and local stakeholders' views of the revised plans for this scheme. The design for the roundabout has been revised and the scheme has been expanded to incorporate a new one-way arrangement on Redland Road, from Elmgrove Road to junction with Zetland Road and South Road.

Why your views matter

This consultation aims to assess the views of citizens and local stakeholders, in order to ensure that the scheme design adequately addresses the problems in this area.

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 if deemed to be appropriate, will be written into the proposed scheme.

The next step after the receipt of comments and revision of the scheme is the drafting and publishing of the relevant Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs).

This stage can be a lengthy legal process which will involve placing a Notice of Intent in the local press and posting notices on site to advertise the proposals.
