Consultation request from the West of England Combined Authority…
How can we make travelling on the A37 & A367 better on foot, by bike and by bus?
The West of England Combined Authority is working with local councils to improve transport across our region. We want to provide better and more sustainable transport to help people move around more easily, lower carbon emissions and improve the environment we live in.
We are working on a number of projects to improve bus services and walking and cycling opportunities, as part of our vision for a greener, better connected transport network in the West of England. By reducing congestion and increasing accessibility we can also support local economies and improve people’s health and quality of life.
Many of these projects have evolved from opportunities identified in our Joint Local Transport Plan 4 which sets out the vision for transport in the region up to 2036 and shows how we aim to achieve a well-connected, sustainable transport network that works for residents. Investment in bus, cycling and walking routes is a significant part of that vision.
The A37 & A367 corridor project is being led by the West of England Combined Authority and delivered in partnership with Bath and North East Somerset Council. It aims to improve travel between Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Westfield and Bath, through better bus services and enabling more cycling and walking.
Work will be broken down into phased projects focusing on different sections of the route over the next three to five years.
We are currently engaging with people who live near, or travel along, the A37 and A367 for work or leisure, including anyone whose main route into Bristol or Bath is via the A4 or A367. We want to find out what issues you and your constituents currently experience and what improvements you would like to see prioritised on these routes.
There is an online survey here: https://consultation.westofengland-ca.gov.uk/infrastructure/a37a367survey/ which we are asking people to complete to give us their views. It is also available in a paper format or we can receive comments via an interactive map of the route.
Please can I ask you to share this information with your constituents and encourage as many people as possible to complete the A37 & A367 survey.
