    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.

  5. Scheme implementation


    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.

  6. Monitoring

    On target Ongoing

    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.
