Old Market Bristol Improvements:
Improvements for pedestrians and cyclists on the Old Market Roundabout will be taking place after funding was secured from the Department for Transport’s Cycle Safety fund.
A bid by Bristol City Council earned £479,495 to improve safety and access to the city will see the final remains of a historic underpass removed and new toucan crossings installed.
The work , which is due to be completed next year, will also connect existing cycle routes through Castle Park in the the segregated cycleway at Bond Street South.
“This project will improve the safety for all users of this route into the city centre via Old Market and I’m really pleased that we have been successful in this funding bid,” Cllr Mhairi Threlfall, Cabinet Member for Transport at Bristol City Council said.
“An improved route across this roundabout will provide a vital link to a number of new and existing cycle and pedestrian routes, as part of our ongoing efforts to provide a well-connected and safe network across Bristol. It will provide an attractive and healthy alternative that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy and it will contribute to all our work to reduce congestion and pollution in the city.”
