Major transport schemes

In September 2011 the West of England councils submitted their best and final bids for the Bath Transportation Package, the Weston Package and the three MetroBus routes.

These schemes collectively produce significant benefits in terms of economic output, unlocking jobs, and in carbon reduction. They directly serve locations expected to deliver more than 60,000 new jobs by 2026.
