Proposals for New Pedestrian Crossing on Henleaze Road

The Council proposes to introduce a new Zebra Crossing on Henleaze Road, south of its junction with Eastfield Road and Southmead Road.

The new crossing has been identified as a condition of the Planning Consent for a residential development (at the previous “Quarryleaze” site). It will provide a safer and more convenient crossing point for pedestrians wishing to cross this busy distributer road when walking to and from local bus stops and other local amenities.

The Council’s official Notice of the Proposals can be seen here Notice of Proposals together with a Plan of Proposals and Statement of Reasons

The consultation closes on Thursday 4 February. Please refer to the “How to Object” section that can be found in Notice of Proposals

    Why, while this was at the planning stage, were the views and amenity considerations of the residents of the much larger development on the old Blind School site not sought? There is clearly a considerable number of elderly folk living there as well. If you are wishing to encourage bus use, then the proposed crossing will get the new ‘Quarryleaze’ residents inbound to the city, but the return stop will mean they have to cross back across Southmead Road to get to their new crossing. Conversely if the new arrivals want to go to the hospital or The Mall they can cross Henleaze Road safely on the return journey, but again need to get across Southmead Road to catch an outbound bus. I think that only half a job has been done and would earnestly suggest a rethink with respect to Southmead Road.

    I hear what you say but your thoughts would carry far more weight if formally submitted to BCC Highways before their Consultation closes on 4 February. Full details of how to submit an objection (or comment) are given in the original posting.
