The timeline below shows the lifecycle of this project, including the current (active) stage and those already completed, as well as expected future stages and timings, if the scheme is approved and goes ahead to completion.
Public consultation on scheme proposalsCompleted
The first stage of the consultation set out our initial proposals for Upper Bristol Road.View the original consultation
This stage of the consultation is now closed.
The results from the consultation were considered by the Cabinet on 23rd June 2021. We decided the scheme should proceed, with some amendments, to the Traffic Regulation Order stage of consultation.
This consultation ran from 30 Nov 2021 to 4 Jan 2022 and gave you an opportunity to state your support for, or objection to, the Traffic Regulation Orders
We will publish a feedback report after this period of consultation.
Report and final decisionCompleted
The decision has been taken to go ahead with the scheme, with a few very minor changes.
We have also published the report which explains how the decision has been reached, together with a report on the analysis of the consultation responses.
The Notice of Making for the TROs was published on 14 April 2022 on our TRO web page.
The TROs will be brought into effect over the summer, which is when construction will start. Construction works are expected to be completed in the autumn.
You can view the steps involved in the construction project on our A4 Upper Bristol Road improvement project page.
We will undertake traffic flow counts and surveys before and after project implementation.
We will also undertake a review of the scheme after it has been in place for 12 months, to assess what has worked well and what could be improved.
We will publish information on the cycle and motor vehicle flows, and results from opinion surveys about the scheme.
