Re-opening University Road

Bristol City Council is proposing to re-open the lower end of University Road to motor traffic, having only last year made permanent the temporary closure introduced during the Covid pandemic, based on the benefits of uninterrupted pedestrian priority at this location.

BWA has strongly objected to the proposal to remove the prohibition of motor traffic on University Road at its junction with Queens Road due to its adverse effect on pedestrian flow, and that the reasons given do not stand up to scrutiny.

Even the Council admits that “prioritising motor traffic is not in line / in accordance with current local and national policy / traffic hierarchy”.
