Further public information events are to be held around the city during the South Bath Transport Options consultation, giving more people the opportunity to learn about the proposed improvements.
Curo has announced additional events to give more people the opportunity to learn about and comment on proposed transport improvements that would link the city centre to south Bath.
The events will be held at weekends and evenings, and at different locations around the city, making it easier for people to attend an exhibition.
New transport improvements are required to help address key city challenges, including poor air quality, traffic congestion and the need to link people with jobs.
Options include improvements to local bus services, a new cable car, and changes to the city’s infrastructure to encourage more walking and cycling.
The additional events are being held at:
- St Stephen’s Church, Lansdown Road, Lansdown, between 9am and 12pm on Saturday 8th April;
- Southgate (outside the Apple store) between 9am and 5pm on Saturday 22nd April;
- Randall’s Bar at Bath City Football Club, Twerton Park, between 6pm and 8pm on Wednesday 26th April;
- All Saints Centre, High Street, Weston, between 9am and 12pm on Saturday 6th May.
Curo Chief Executive, Victor da Cunha, said: “Since we announced the South Bath Transport Options consultation there has been a huge amount of interest from residents and businesses in the city.
“We hope these new dates will enable more people to access information on the options being considered.
“Resolving Bath’s transport issues remains a priority for the city; as a landlord and landowner in Bath we believe that housing cannot be looked at in isolation and that a holistic approach to local residents’ quality of life, opportunities and the sustainability of the whole city is important.”
For those unable to attend the events, information will be available online at www.southbathtransportoptions.co.uk where members of the public can also leave feedback.
