West of England Joint Transport Study

The four West of England Councils – Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol City, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire – have produced a West of England Joint Transport Study (JTS).

The West of England’s Joint Transport Study was endorsed by the West of England Joint Committee on 30th October 2017. It has drawn on extensive evidence and stakeholder engagement to develop a long-term Transport Vision for the West of England, which includes Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

The purpose of the Joint Transport Study (JTS) is to provide a clear direction for the long-term development of the transport system in the West of England to 2036 and beyond. The study addressed the combined impact of current challenges on the network as well as growth from committed development in Local Plans and additional longer term growth up to 2036.

The next stage will be to take account of the JTS Vision and recommendations in the forthcoming update of the Joint Local Transport Plan, which will be the subject of public consultation in early summer 2018.
