As the transport minister reminded the Western Super Mayor ( Bignosemac), he has the power to do like London for buses. Not, it would seem, the enthusiasm.

Now, please!

56.9m funding boost for metrobus
More than 56m investment has been approved by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) and the West of England Joint Committee to extend the metrobus network to help more people get on board with bus travel.

The Cribbs Patchway metrobus extension will link the Bristol Parkway railway station and The Mall bus via the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood re-development site at the former Filton Airfield, the Horizon 38 development site, Gipsy Patch Lane and Hatchet Road.

The scheme includes the replacement of the existing railway bridge on Gipsy Patch Lane with a new wider bridge to relieve the current pinch point, the extension and signalisation of the San Andreas roundabout to allow a new bus only arm to link to the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood, and bus lanes on Gipsy Patch Lane. New metrobus stops and walking & cycling infrastructure are also included.


At the meeting, the WECA Committee also agreed to allocate 300,000 to South Gloucestershire Council to co-fund the 670,000 package of works led by Great Western Railway to improve the bus/rail interchange at Bristol Parkway Station. The improvements will include new bus shelters for local bus services and new branded metrobus stops, including real time information, an electronic information point and off-bus ticket dispenser, changes to taxi and drop-off points and the remodelling of the station forecourt.
