Traffic is expected to dramatically reduce on the roads which currently link the residential areas of South Bristol to Winterstoke Road and to the city centre via Bedminster. These roads include Whitchurch Road, Bishopsworth Road, South Liberty Lane, Kings Head Lane and Highridge Green.
The 50km MetroBus network is designed to quickly transport large numbers of people around the city by using a combination of segregated busways and bus lanes.
MetroBus will provide rapid and reliable bus journeys from south Bristol to the centre and north of the city.
By improving the reliability of bus services, MetroBus aims to encourage more people to leave their cars at home which will reduce congestion for everyone.
