Hundreds of people have signed our petition to scrap plans to create monstrous and complicated “throughabouts” on the ring road.
South Glos Council has recently closed a consultation on its controversial ring road plans and we submitted objections as a local party and as individuals. But local residents have continued to get in touch with us to share their concerns about disruption, impact on surrounding roads and on the countryside. We have also heard about other places where similar throughabouts have been confusing to road users and not achieved their objectives.
Our petition provides another way to continue expressing concerns to the Council. And hundreds of people have already signed it in the first few days.
Our petition reaches the radio!
This morning, James Dowling, an Emersons Green Town Councillor and member of South Glos Green Party, went on BBC Radio Bristol to talk about the ring road plans. He shared concerns about long-term disruption, air quality, and the impact of the plans on the climate emergency commitments. He also discussed the lack of improvements for cyclists and pedestrians and that these plans continue as bus routes are cut.
