The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) is currently engaging local residents on plans to provide better and more sustainable transport between Bath and Bristol – to help people move around more easily, reduce congestion, lower carbon emissions and improve the environment. This is being done in partnership with Bath and North East Somerset Council and Bristol City Council Bristol.
WECA want to hear from people who live near, or travel along, the A4 for work or leisure, including anyone whose main route into Bristol or Bath is via the A4. WECA want to find out what issues they currently experience and what improvements they would like to see.
This early engagement on the Bristol to Bath Corridor Project will help WECA to develop more detailed proposals to improve travel between Bath and Bristol, through better bus services and encouraging more cycling and walking.
We would be grateful if residents could raise awareness of this consultation with their Saltford neighbours.
Saltford Parish Council will discuss and agree its response to the consultation at its 7 September meeting. The public are welcome to attend and speak at the meeting.
There is an online survey https://consultation.westofengland-ca.gov.uk/infrastructure/bristoltobathsurvey or WECA can receive comments via an interactive map of the route. WECA are also making paper copies of the survey available on request.
