Mott MacDonald delivers on key West of England transport link appraisal

Mott MacDonald was commissioned by Bristol City Council and North Somerset Council to develop the business case for the proposed South Bristol Link, an integrated road and public transport scheme that would link the A370 with the A4174 at Hartcliffe Roundabout, a distance of approximately three miles.

The South West Councils have re-confirmed the project as a priority in the second Regional Funding Advice (RFA2) for construction between 2014 and 2017 and allocated £47m towards its construction.

The South Bristol Link is one of the major schemes being developed as part of the sub-region’s Joint Local Transport Plan (JLTP), which aims to tackle congestion and reduce car dependency through the provision of quality alternatives to car use, as well as improve accessibility to major employment centres and new developments.

Chris Rice, Mott MacDonald’s project director commented, "The West of England is facing some real challenges over the coming decades to accommodate projected population growth and the regeneration of deprived areas. The development of cost-effective and sustainable infrastructure solutions will play a crucial role in supporting the local economy, and we look forward to working with the local authorities in the region to ensure that the best options are fully explored."
