Consultation on Bristol City Council proposals for changes to the A4018 has now closed.
The controversial document attracted a great deal of feedback resulting in 3,355 responses from members of the public. Concerns at poorly thought through proposals to make changes to one of the busiest routes in our area, stretching from the Downs, past Henleaze and Westbury-on-Trym to Cribbs Causeway, have been raised by local people. The business community and local people are particularly worried about the pedestrianisation of part of Westbury village, reducing the footfall for traders and access for residents.
Many people living on roads adjoining the A4018 were not informed about the proposals, even though the volume of traffic would be likely to increase on their road.
The council will be in no doubt about the strength of feeling of locally. People are hoping for a complete revision of the proposals.
A decision is expected at the cabinet meeting on June 4.
