Bradley Stoke South / Stoke Gifford - Great Stoke Roundabout - Proposed Improvement



The council has investigated options to improve the operation of the Great Stoke Roundabout in Stoke Gifford, at the junction of Bradley Stoke Way and Great Stoke Way with the B4057 Winterbourne Road.


Purpose of Scheme

This scheme aims to increase vehicle capacity at Great Stoke Roundabout, to accommodate the increase in traffic flows expected from the committed developments in the area and the widening of Gipsy Patch Lane railway bridge as part of Cribbs Patchway Metrobus Extension. Traffic modeling indicates that it will operate significantly over-capacity during the morning and evening peak periods by 2036, leading to increased levels of congestion with more queueing and delay.

The objectives of the improvement scheme are to:
• Reduce levels of congestion;
• Improve journey time reliability;
• Reduce vehicular emissions; and,
• Improve pedestrian and cyclist routes.


Proposed Scheme

The improvement scheme involves the following works to convert the existing roundabout:
• Widening of the approaches to the roundabout and on the roundabout itself, to increase the number of lanes from two to three;

• Installation of Toucan crossings (shared use pedestrian and cycle) across all roundabout approaches; and,
• Relocation of the current cycle access ramp on Great Stoke Way to provide greater separation between this ramp and the proposed crossing to reduce the risk of conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists.

Further details are shown on the consultation drawing (see below).


Subject to receiving funding, construction could commence in Autumn 2019 and is expected to take one year to complete.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
