Reminder - Consultation on roads changes

We all have until the 28th January to comment on the Council's proposals for road changes in our area. The project is labelled as the "No. 2 bus route", or the "A4018 / A37" project, but has much wider implications for Henleaze and Westbury.

There are dozens of separate proposals, just a few include:

  • Southmead Road being reduced to one carriageway each way between Wellington Hill and Henleaze Road.
  • The entrance to Lake Road being closed.
  • The dual carriageway on Henleaze road being reduced to single carriageways.
  • Further along Henleaze Road, the Henley Grove junction being narrowed and Holmes Grove and Henleaze Gardens being closed off at one end.

There are also proposed changes elsewhere in the city such as a "bus gate" on Park St and major changes around the Triangle.

Whether you agree with these proposals or not, if you don't tell the Council what you think now, you may not get another chance. You can find all of the details and leave your comments at You can also request a paper copy by calling 0117 903 6449.
