Charity sets out Bristol transport vision

Charity Sustrans has produced a document aiming to inspire better transport in Bristol.

The organisation’s Good Transport Plan is designed to inspire individuals and councils to improve the way people move around the city.

It set out a number of themes for improving transport in Bristol, including:

  • Better bus and train services
  • Protected walking and cycling routes with safer crossings at junctions
  • More low emission vehicles and fewer lorries on our roads
  • Reducing through-traffic in the city centre
  • Community-led street improvements

Views received on the plan will help to shape a revised version, which will be published by the end of the year.

Sustrans regional director Ian Barrett said: “We want to set out a positive vision for transport in Bristol that everyone can get behind.’

“Bristol’s roads are already full. We need to invest more in other ways of getting around as the population grows, or congestion and air pollution will get worse.

“The plan sets out how we can improve transport in Bristol and help create a city with vibrant public spaces and thriving community streets.”
