Work to improve travel safety for walking, wheeling, and cycling along Park Row, Perry Road, Upper Maudlin Street and Colston Street is set to get underway this spring.
The transport scheme will make it easier and safer for active travel; manage traffic flow and reduce pollution; and encourage more sustainable travel in the area.
- Upgrading cycle lanes and other cycle infrastructure
- Upgrading crossings and other pedestrian infrastructure
- Upgrading traffic signals
- Creating loading bays and disabled bays (for Blue Badge holders)
This project is just one of a raft of active travel schemes the council is working on. We’ve recently completed works on Bristol Bridge to install a cycle lane and improve accessibility for pedestrians as well as work to pedestrianise Cotham Hill.
Construction work is continuing at Old Market Gap on a segregated cycle route plus wider and safer crossing points, and there are more projects in the pipeline, including completing our Old City and Princess Victoria Street pedestrianisation schemes using long-lasting materials to improve the look and feel of both areas.
Access to businesses along Park Row and the surrounding area will be maintained throughout the work that is set to be completed by early 2025.
The project is part of the Department for Transport’s Active Travel programme which has contributed £3.1 million.
