West of England Joint Transport Study

Bus park street

The West of England's four local authorities have launched a public consultation as part of the Joint Transport Study, which will inform high level strategy and the delivery of major transport schemes throughout the area until 2036.

Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council are preparing the study in parallel with the West of England's Joint Spatial Plan, which is looking at how to meet the need for housing and employment space up to 2036.

We want to ask people who live, work and travel in the West of England about the key transport issues affecting the area, and what sort of transport solutions we should look at over the next 20 years.

This is the first stage of the process to agree a strategy through to 2036. Local communities and stakeholders will have further opportunities to comment over the coming months.

This consultation about the first stage in the transport study is open until 29 January 2016 and includes:

  1. An assessment of current issues.
  2. Formulation of objectives.
  3. Developing possible transport solutions.

Further information is contained in the Joint Transport Study: Key Principles Report
