We’re also extending bus priority measures in the area by providing a signalised bus gate on Stoke Lane and a longer length of bus lane. All bus services will be able to take advantage of a new extended southbound bus lane which will start opposite the Lancelot Road junction.
- Installing new pedestrian crossings at key locations will improve safety for pedestrians.
- Making the junction between Stoke Lane and Frenchay Park Road safer.
- Providing dedicated turning lanes to improve the flow of vehicles and cyclists at the junction with Frenchay Park Road.
Cyclists will also be able to use the new sections of bus lane on Stoke Lane.
We’ll be planting new trees and shrubs along the eastern side of the Stoke Lane. This will complement and strengthen the existing
visual screening and provide continuity of habitat along the length of the road.
We’re also improving the area near Simms Hill by clearing the scrub in the field to the east of Stoke Lane below Simms Hill to allow grass to develop.
