Following in-depth consideration of the proposals being put forward for the A37/A4018 Corridor, BWA has submitted a detailed response to the consultation, which is now ending.
We support the many improvements that are being proposed to the pedestrian experience along the No 2 bus route. However, we point out four significant remaining problem areas:
- Temple Meads to Three Lamps – no proposals are included for this dangerous narrow shared-use footway
- Triangle to Park Street – includes two significant pinch points where footway widths are inadequate for the high pedestrian numbers
- Crossing Wells Road at St John’s Lane – will still require five separate pedestrian crossing stages
- Path alongside Westbury Road – should not be shared-use
Our response includes detailed comments for the whole route as well as arguments for tackling the four problems listed above.
