Better Bus Area

BBAF Wells Road (A37)

Informal Consultation from Monday 18th September to Friday 6th October 2017


What is proposed?

Bristol City Council is proposing to improve the A37 Wells Road, one of eight corridors within the Better Bus Fund area (BBAF2). Proposals include comprehensive improvements to existing bus routes as part of the West of England’s Joint Local Transport Plan.   The proposals aim to improve journey times, reliability and reduce pollution by making bus travel easier and more attractive, while also improving safety and the environment for other road users, local residents and businesses.

The consultation leaflet highlights the following proposals:

  • Modified and extended bus lanes and hours of operation
  • Associated amended loading and waiting restrictions
  • Improved signage and lining
  • Other localised amendments to waiting and loading restrictions


Informal consultation

The Council has undertaken initial consultation with bus operators and key stakeholders about the proposals, and is keen to hear the views of local residents and businesses. The consultation leaflet is intended to provide you with basic information about what is proposed so that you can tell us what you think at this stage. The plans are indicative only. Consultation on precise lengths of bus lane and exact locations of parking restriction changes will follow spring 2018, as part of the Council’s formal statutory consultation exercise.

For more detailed plans see the consultation drawings attached below.
