  • There will be years of disruption
    If these plans go ahead we would have an estimated three years of delays, road works, noise and construction traffic affecting all users of the ring road

  • Buses, cyclists and pedestrians are neglected
    The plans do not provide adequate provision for either pedestrians or cyclists and make no commitment to improving bus frequency and reliability. A larger and busier road could also potentially increase the risks of accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists.

  • The plans do nothing to address the climate emergency
    South Gloucestershire Council has declared a climate emergency. These proposals will not make any positive difference to the enormous environmental challenges we face. And the latest IPCC report underlines the urgency of taking climate change seriously.
