This Experimental Traffic Order scheme restricts some movements for motor vehicles at Hambrook traffic signals, the junction of A4174 Filton Road and B4058 Bristol Road on the ring road. The trial aims to improve air quality and test traffic flow before deciding whether to make the changes permanent.

Comments and objections will be accepted from 12 August 2019 to 11 February 2020

Have your say about the Experimental Traffic Order that alters the way motor vehicle traffic passes through the traffic signal controlled junction between A4174 and B4058 at Hambrook. The trial and its consultation will start from 11th August 2019 with a six month period for any person to make comments and submit objections, stating on what grounds you are objecting to the measures being put in place indefinitely.

The council will in due course consider all submissions and other information collected during the trial before making a decision whether to make the changes permanent. This will happen within 18 months of commencement.

Please view the documents which may be downloaded using the links below, before responding.


Comments must be sent to us in writing after the measures are in place, and should preferably be submitted using the Experimental Traffic Order online questionnaire which will be available on this page until 11 February 2020.

Please include reasons for any comments you make against any decision to make an order for the indefinite continuation of this scheme. Comments in support of the scheme and your reasons for making them are also invited.

Alternatively you may respond by post or email by writing your comments on a Statutory Orders response form which may be downloaded, and which can then be sent to us using the contact details on the form.

Please also note that all representations received may be considered in public by the Council and that the substance of any representation together with the name and address of the person making it could become available for public inspection.

The restricted movements for motor vehicles from the B4058 Bristol Road and A4174 Filton Road will remain in place for the duration of the experimental traffic order, which is a maximum of eighteen months from commencement.

If you have any questions that are not answered by the online scheme information before submitting a response, you can request assistance by email or telephone using the contact details provided below. 

Please register in order to respond to this consultation and to be updated as the project progresses.

This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results.

Scheme updates may also be found on the dedicated web page:



At the end of the six month objection period copies of all objections and comments received in respect of this matter will be forwarded to the Director of Environment and Community Services for investigation and for consideration as to whether or not the traffic measures and legal order should be continued indefinitely, or be abandoned. Should there be a variation to the order the six month objection period will restart, but in any case the decision will be made within 18 months of commencement.


The decision will be included here in due course.

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.
Target Audience
  • All residents
