Cribbs Patchway Metrobus Extension - Gipsy Patch Lane works

Three metrobus routes are in operation in the West of England area providing faster, more frequent and more reliable services with direct routes to key destinations.

South Gloucestershire Council is developing the Cribbs Patchway metrobus extension. It is called an 'extension' because it will extend part of the existing metrobus network that is already operating.

The Cribbs Patchway metrobus extension will help reduce an expected increase in traffic levels as a result of new houses and businesses built in the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood on the former Filton Airfield. The scheme will further improve the public transport network by providing an alternative, fast and direct bus route between Parkway Station and The Mall.

By offering faster, reliable bus travel on modern, environmentally-friendly vehicles with USB sockets and free Wi-Fi, we aim to increase the number of people travelling on public transport and reduce the amount of traffic on the local road network.

Please visit the South Gloucestershire Council website for further information.

South Gloucestershire Council - Gipsy Patch Lane travel survey

We are currently considering options to manage traffic during the main Cribbs Patchway metrobus extension construction work on Gipsy Patch Lane which is due to start later this year. We have published an online travel survey to better understand travel patterns on Gipsy Patch Lane. Please complete the survey if you travel along this road regularly. It should take about five minutes to complete and your input will help us to minimise disruption during the roadworks.

Complete the survey at www.southglos.gov.uk/GPLsurvey

The survey is open until Wednesday 20 March 2019
