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

Closed 8 Sep 2019

Opened 27 Jul 2019

Overview

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.

For the details of the scheme, please see the related documents (consultation leaflet and scheme plan) below.

Why We Are Consulting

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), which are legally required for the implementation of the banned left turn and for the reduction in length of the Residents’ Parking Scheme parking bays. A statutory Notice advertising the speed cushions is also required (although these measures do not require a TRO). 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.
