West of England Joint Transport Study: Transport Vision

Introduction

In 2015 the four West of England councils started a major study to shape the future of our transport network over the next twenty years.

We have been working together to develop proposals for a package of integrated public transport, walking, cycling and highway  investment, to tackle congestion, improve air quality and promote more sustainable travel choices, and deliver housing and employment growth up to 2036.

This summary outlines our progress and recommended package of investment, and asks for your views. We will then take your views intoaccount in a final recommendation on the schemes to be taken forward in an investment programme and investigate funding options for them.

This consultation is taking place alongside a consultation on the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP). The JSP considers how future development up to 2036 should be managed. The JSP and our transport vision are closely linked and their joint impacts are discussed further below.
