Construction work is set to get underway this August on Muller Road, to help buses move more quickly through traffic and improve the cycling and walking infrastructure.
Lockleaze is a growing neighbourhood, with around 1,000 new homes planned for the area as well as a new secondary school.
To make sure local roads can keep up with this future growth, Bristol City Council is starting work this summer to install a 24-hour bus lane on Muller Road between Downend Road and Ralph Road, which will incorporate a bus gate at the junction with Ralph Road.
Work will also include resurfacing part of Muller Road, installing traffic signals at Ralph Road, and creating modal filters on Springfield Avenue, Draycott Road and Brent Road to stop traffic other than bicycles cutting through from Muller Road.
Temporary traffic lights will be in use on Muller Road, and, towards the end of August, Ralph Road will close to vehicles at its junction with Muller Road and remain closed for most of the works.
The diversion route for traffic will be signposted via Ashley Down Road, Gloucester Road, Filton Avenue and Muller Road.
Some residential roads may also be closed at their junction with Muller Road while the works take place to avoid rat-running.
This temporary traffic management and diversion route will allow the works to be carried out efficiently over a shorter period.
The improvements to Muller Road are part of the Lockleaze Sustainable Transport Infrastructure project, which is being funded from the Housing Infrastructure Fund, provided by Homes England.
Work is expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.
