Bristol Council Press Release

  • Award-winning partnership reduces disruption caused by roadworks

    An award-winning partnership formed to help reduce disruption during roadworks and streetworks has saved Bristol from 150 days of activity on the city’s highways in 2014.

    The Council established the Bristol Code of Conduct for Streetworks and Roadworks in collaboration with Bristol Water, Wessex Water, Wales and West Utilities and Western Power Distribution in January 2014 to help minimise disruption to road users and pedestrians. The partnership has since won a national award in recognition of the results it is achieving since it was introduced.

  • Working together to build a new Ashton Gate railway station

    An initial study has been undertaken into the feasibility of developing a new station and rail platforms at Ashton Gate.

    Bristol City Council commissioned the study to investigate the likely costs, benefits and operational feasibility of a new station nearer the stadium. The former Ashton Gate station was served by the Bristol to Portishead rail line, which closed to passengers in 1964.

    The Greater Bristol councils are developing the crucial £60million MetroWest rail project and Phase 1 includes the re-opening of the Portishead rail line to passenger services.
