Transport plays a big part in our daily lives, so problems with transport tend to have a large effect on us. Whenever we ask about the issues which annoy and frustrate people in Bristol, transport always comes out as one of the major concerns.
Whether we are most concerned about the crowded roads, the constant roadworks, the pollution, the inadequate and expensive public transport, or some other aspect of transport, we all seem to feel that there is considerable room for improvement.
The Council recognises this, and is about to launch a major consultation to shape Bristol’s transport strategy for the period running up to 2036. A draft strategy will be launched on Wednesday 26 September, but we have an opportunity to get in early.
Jodi Savickas (the Transport Policy Manager) will join us at our Open Forum on Tuesday 25 September – the day before the official launch – to talk about the draft strategy and hear from us about our transport concerns and priorities, and gather some initial reactions to the key points in the draft plan.
As usual, we will be meeting at 6 for 6.30 pm at the Barton Hill Settlement, and finishing by 8.30. Some light food and drink will be available.
To help us use this time in the best way possible, please get in touch with us at the usual email address, email@example.com, and let us know about your concerns, priorities and ideas about the future of transport in Bristol.
And to help us set up the meeting and bring the right amount of food and drink, it would be very helpful if you would tell us you are coming, using the Eventbrite page: https://shaping-bristols-transport-strategy-2018-09.eventbrite.co.uk – thank you very much. See you there!
