Consultation on improvements to Park Row, Perry Road, Upper Maudlin Street and Colston Street

Closed 16 Jan 2022

Opened 29 Nov 2021

Overview

Why we are making changes

Bristol City Council is asking for your views on the proposed improvements to Park Row, Perry Road, Upper Maudlin Street and Colston Street. At the end of 2020 (14 December 2020 to 24 January 2021) we asked people for their views on suggested improvements to these roads. We have considered the feedback from this initial engagement and now want your feedback on our proposed designs. The proposed improvements to Park Row, Perry Road, Upper Maudlin Street and Colston Street would bring benefits to businesses and community in this area.

The proposals aim to:

  • Make it easier and safer to walk and cycle in this area by providing more space for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Support local businesses to stay and thrive in the area by increasing the number of pedestrians.
  • Improve safety of traffic light junctions for all road users.
  • Manage traffic flow and reduce pollution in the area.
  • Encourage people to take the bus, walk or cycle to key destinations such as the hospital and university

Have your say

This survey will look at each of the different roads where we are proposing improvements and ask for any feedback you have on the designs. The responses from this consultation and technical work will be considered before a permanent scheme for Park Row, Perry Road, Upper Maudlin Street and Colston Street is potentially implemented.
