Filton Roundabout Ring road widening - Phase 2

Filton roundabout Ring road widening - phase 2

Background

In early 2014, the new Southmead hospital redevelopment is due to be opened to the public. The developers provided funding to improve the capacity of the ring road approach to Filton Roundabout to address the additional congestion generated by the hospital development. Even with this planned improvement, the roundabout will still be heavily congested due to the volume of traffic in the area.

Purpose of Scheme
The council would like to increase the capacity of this roundabout further than those improvements that can be delivered by the hospital funding alone. The hospital funded works that involve widening into the southern footway would become phase 1 of a bigger junction improvement.
 
Proposed scheme
The Hospital funded phase 1 widening described above will be extended further by a phase 2 scheme. This will be achieved by widening into the northern footway.
 
Please review the Statement of reasons for the scheme and associated drawings that describe the proposals.
The phase 1 proposals funded by the hospital development have already been consulted upon and this consultation relates to the extended phase 2 proposals only. If you would like to comment on the phase 2 proposals please respond to this consultation by replying before the closing date of 17 June 2013

This consultation has now closed, feedback on the consultation is now available.
