The consultation closed on 1 October. Thank you to everyone who filled in the questionnaire, attended the drop-in events or sent us feedback. The next step will be to look at the feedback received and publish a report on the detailed results of the engagement. We hope to publish this early this year, 2024.

The new proposals being shared now could change travel along the A4 between Bath and Bristol. The aim is to give better options to choose to travel sustainably – whether that’s by bus, bike, walking and if you use a wheelchair or mobility scooter – wheeling.

The proposals could bring positive benefits. But there will be downsides too – and big choices to make along the way. 

A six-week consultation was held to hear what you think. Your feedback will be essential in helping shape what happens next.

This is at a very early stage and nothing is set in stone.  

Project update

Work on the A4 Bath to Bristol project has been continuing since we asked for feedback on the proposals last year between August and October.

We’d like to again thank everyone who took the time to comment on the proposals. We have taken on board your feedback and considered further technical analysis to make a small number of initial design changes. These are not final, and nothing has been ruled in or out at this stage. The next phase of work will develop designs in greater detail, considering more of the feedback. Nothing is set in stone.

To keep the project on track, we are seeking approval to continue work on the Bath & North East Somerset section from the West of England Mayoral Combined Authority Committee (15 March 2024).

The engagement report is not being published at this time due to the Bristol City Council pre-election period but will be released shortly following the election.
