Proposals for New Pedestrian Crossing on Southmead Road

BCC has initiated a second consultation on revised proposals for the installation of a new Pedestrian Crossing on Southmead Road. This second consultation follows significant feedback (and objections) to the location that had been proposed previously.

The majority of the funding for this consultation, and  the eventual implementation of the works, was originally granted as the result of a successful bid by the Neighbourhood Partnership’s Transport Working Group for funding from an Active Neighbourhood Transport Grant in 2013. A copy of the consultation document – which will be distributed to local residents in the area –  can be seen here: Southmead Road Pedestrian Crossing (Second Consultation) and an Overview is available on the Council’s website.

All comments and suggestions should be submitted to BCC’s Traffic Management Group before the Consultation’s closing deadline of Friday 28 August 2015.  Contact details are given in both the Second Consultation Leaflet and the Overview

Any issues that are raised will be considered and, if acceptable, will be incorporated into a proposal for a Formal Scheme later this year – before undertaking any statutory consultation process.
