Cycling news from Bristol and beyond

3 Important New Consultations


We’re starting to see the new / updated wave of projects that have specific benefits (though some disbenefits) for cycling and a move to Dutch Style ‘8 to 80’ infrastructure with exemplar routes / sections.

Please have a look at these and comment on them in this light. Hopefully you will support us in objecting to BRT, but lending your weight to getting the best that we can out of it, should it go ahead.

When you respond to the consultations and write to your Councillors please let us know. We will do a consolidated response of people’s views – drop us a line at secretary


Clarence Road (part of the Promenade Route)

North Fringe to Hengrove Package MetroBus revised route: Bedminster to Redcliffe roundabout (consultation closed)

You can find out more about the Promenades route on our Campaigns page and follow our critiques of these schemes on Cyclescape.

We are building up an overview of cycling developments in Bristol with direct links to information on individual schemes on our What’s Occuring? page.
