Mayor announces transport changes for Bristol city centre18 May 2020

A package of major transport improvements in Bristol have been unveiled, paving the way for safer and better public transport, cleaner air and improved walking and cycling routes.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown conditions, the Mayor of Bristol has announced plans to accelerate existing long-term transport ambitions in order to help Bristolians safely navigate the city.

Plans include pedestrianising parts of the Old City, introducing a 'bus priority route' over Bristol bridge and walking and cycling upgrades are planned for some city centre streets including Victoria Street.

During our BID consultation period many of you identified the potential benefits of improvements like these and this is a great step forward.  To read the full announcement see here.
