Alongside other Cycle Ambition Fund 2 projects, Bristol City Council is looking to address the bugbears encountered by people when travelling around the city. These are the bugbear issues that make cycling and walking less enjoyable for people. Issues like missing signs, restrictive barriers, etc., which make a journey more inconvenient.

Between Spring to Autumn 2016, we asked the public for their thoughts and these comments were captured on our Bristol Bugbears website.

Anchor Road crossing improvements

The Anchor Road/College Green crossing is now closed until mid-August for resurfacing improvements.

The work, scheduled for the quieter summer holiday period, involves removing some old paving stones, laying a smoother tarmac surface and extending the segregated cycling way which leads up to Park Street.

Pedestrian and cycle diversions will be signposted for the duration of the works. Advanced warning signs are also in place on approaches to the crossing, including from Baldwin Street and Park Street. Cyclists will be diverted onto the carriageway in Park Street or they can choose to get off and walk using the pedestrian diversion.

The works follow recent improvements to widen the Anchor Road/College Green parallel crossing and are funded by the Cycle Ambition Fund.



In October 2016, we closed the Bristol Cycling and Walking Bugbears website to new comments after collecting nearly two thousand individual bugbears across Bristol.
