Mott MacDonald appointed design engineer for South Bristol Link

Mott MacDonald has been appointed design engineer by Bristol City and North Somerset Councils for the £45 million South Bristol Link transport project aimed at regenerating South Bristol and helping to reduce congestion in South Bristol and the adjacent areas of North Somerset.

The South Bristol Link scheme is made up of several key elements. Rapid transit links will be extended from the Long Ashton Park & Ride site to the new Community Hospital, Campus and Leisure Centre at Hengrove Park in South Bristol. Additionally, a new single carriageway road is planned between the A370, A38 and the existing A4174 at the Cater Road Roundabout. Cycling and pedestrian facilities that will run parallel to the rapid transit and highway elements will also be developed.

Mott MacDonald will be responsible for the scheme engineering and landscape design of the project which will help facilitate regeneration and growth in the South Bristol area. The link will also improve accessibility from South Bristol to the city centre and to strategic transport links, including the trunk road network and Bristol International Airport.

“We are delighted to have secured this commission to work with North Somerset and Bristol City Councils to bring this project to fruition. We will support the authorities in the next phase of the project development, building on the work we have done to date including initial environmental assessment, feasibility design and development of the major scheme business case," commented Mott MacDonald’s director for Local Authority Services Richard Chinn.

The consultancy’s latest commission began in April 2011, continuing their involvement on the project which dates back to 2007. In this time the consultancy has undertaken initial scheme review and scoping, option appraisal including workshops and quantified scheme risk assessments. The Best and Final Bid submission is due in September this year, with the Department for Transport announcement expected towards the end of 2011.
