Partnership members respond to transport strategy consultation
12th November 2018
The draft Bristol Transport Strategy, published in September, is a new vision from Bristol City Council for improving transport in Bristol over the next two decades. A consultation ran until 2 November to gain the views of organisations groups and residents across the city.
Some of the approaches earmarked in the strategy to help city-wide movement include:
• A mass transit scheme, such as underground or tram
• Better bus services
• Improving bus and local rail services
• More Park and Ride sites
• Safer walking and cycling routes
• Road safety improvements
• Invest in technology, such as smart phone apps to help people plan journeys
• Efficient freight movement to consolidate goods into fewer vehicles.
Several Partnership members made submissions to the consultation, including a joint response from the Sustainable Transport Network, a group of Partnership members interested or working in sustainable transport. If your organisation submitted a response that is not listed here, please do share so we can add it to the list.
There are other upcoming opportunities to have a say on transport plans for the region, with the Joint Local Transport Plan due for consultation in the beginning of 2019. If you’re not currently signed up as member of the Partnership, consider doing so today in order to stay up-to-date with news, events, and other ways to be involved.
