Growing optimism at December 2015’s SevernNet Sustainable Transport Forum

The SevernNet Sustainable Transport Forum met on Thursday 3rd December 2015. The Forum covers all modes of transport across the area and brings together stakeholders including community representatives, businesses, local authorities and service providers.
There is growing optimism that the investment in infrastructure, particularly the A403 investment and the shuttle bus, will start to make a difference.

The problems with congestion on Avonmouth Way were also noted as needing urgent attention.
