Darren declares A4018 victory

Following confirmation from Bristol City Council and local media reports on revised plans for the A4018 scheme, Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, declared victory as large elements of the original proposals (presented in February and March 2019) have been dropped.

Darren had urged constituents to sign his petition calling on the Mayor to scrap the plans to the village, complete his A4018 survey and formally respond to the council’s consultation before it closed on 17th March. Darren also hosted three public meetings to gather feedback before submitting his formal consultation response (which you can see below).

Following the news, Darren said:

“It looks like we’ve won the debate on carving up Westbury-on-Trym and blocking access to Brentry from the Crow Lane roundabout in Henbury, as well as the vast majority of the turning restrictions proposed. Thanks to my colleague Mayor Marvin Rees for listening to feedback from local residents, and to so many of you for taking part in my petition, consultation meetings and contacting my office direct. I urge constituents to let me know what they think of these revised plans – they will go to a Council meeting on 18th June”.

Darren continues to call upon the Regional Mayor to review and support his North Bristol Transport Plan, published in January 2019.
