Bristol City Council is asking people who live near or travel on four walking, wheeling, and cycling routes in Bristol to consider proposals to make them safer and more accessible.
The routes being considered are:
- Deanery Road
- Filwood Quietway
- Malago Greenway
- Old Market Quietway
Proposed improvements include segregated cycle paths, upgraded or new crossings, upgraded junctions, public realm improvements, and better signposting along the routes.
The responses collected will help to inform which proposals are taken forward. Additional technical work will be completed in the spring, followed by more detailed designs, for which further funding would need to be sought.
The following drop-in sessions to find out more information about the proposals will take place:
- Malago Greenway: Thursday 29 February from 10am to 2pm at Knowle West Health Centre
- Old Market Quietway: Friday 1 March from 10am to 2pm at Trinity Community Arts
- Filwood Quietway: Wednesday 6 March from 12.30pm to 4.30pm at The Park Centre
- Deanery Road: Tuesday 12 March from 10am to 2pm at Central Library
This phase of the project is being funded by tranche four of the Department for Transport’s Active Travel Fund, administered by the West of England Combined Authority.
To find out more and give your views, visit Ask Bristol by midnight, Sunday 17 March 2024.
