Filton and Brentry Transport Improvements Package

Closed 25 May 2022

Opened 11 Apr 2022

Overview

The consultation is part of a joint project between South Gloucestershire Council and Bristol City Council to provide improved walking and cycling routes. The aim is to encourage sustainable travel and to support proposed developments in these areas, including the Brabazon Arena and the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood (CPNN), on the former Filton airfield site.

We have launched a seven-week consultation on our proposals, and you have until Wednesday 25 May to give us your feedback.

Initial proposals have been developed for:

  • Charlton Road, between Pen Park Road and Charlton Mead Drive
  • The A38, between the new CPNN access and the Filton roundabout
  • Filton Avenue, between the A38 and the A4174 Avon Ring Road
  • A4174 Avon Ring Road, between Filton Avenue and Concorde Way

The suggestions for these areas include a mixture of new off-road cycling facilities, segregated walking and cycling routes, raised footways at side junctions to give priority to pedestrians and cyclists and new pedestrian crossings.

There are also proposals to relocate two existing bus stops along the A38 to improve traffic flows at the Filton roundabout. These are the southbound stop at Springfields and the southbound stop at Filton Church.

Additionally, the project includes a new traffic management system for the area, which will use smart technology to improve traffic flows on roads especially during busy times.

The improvements would be funded through a combination of developer contributions and the West of England Combined Authority. South Gloucestershire and Bristol City Council are submitting a Business Case to the Combined Authority to help secure funding.
