West of England Mayor hosts Heathrow Airport visit.

https://www.westofengland-ca.gov.uk/west-england-mayor-hosts-heathrow-airport-visit/


WTF


I thought the idea of having a Metro Mayor was to get the area moving, not to promote and build production facilities for other areas to use to get themselves moving and then when they've done p*** off. Henbury Loop, tongue in cheek, Portishead re-opening, MetroWest ought to be the Metro Mayors priorities NOT THIS.

Might not be so much of a nightmayor any attempt to bring more employment to the area can only be beneficial to the campaign for the new stations at Aztec West and of course Pilning.

An enhanced solution to Bristol's congestion problems can be achieved with a "3 loop solution".

The only solution to Bristol's congestion problems is a congestion charge with the main arterial roads into the city's central area made clearways.

Welcome to the forum, JC - an interesting idea.   Did you have light rail or heavy rail in mind, or a mixture.  At first glance some heavy engineering around Clifton Down, but not being too familiar with the area, you may be able to tell me otherwise?

It's a chicken and egg situation tho...

You can't start imposing a congestion charge unless there's both a viable and reliable public transport option in place to take those drivers off the road first

Was a completely different situation in London where it's been introduced...  they have not just the tube and London Overground, but probably the most comprehensive bus service in the country.  When I moved to London myself for a while, owning a car wasn't even a consideration as it made no sense vs the public transport options

Moving back to Bristol it soon became apparent that not just to commute every day for me but to get pretty much anywhere i'd need a car

The first town plan. An idea that had legs.
