No bus lane on Hatchet Road, Stoke Gifford
04/12/17 We won!
There are good days, very good days and super-duper days - as far as Hatchet Road goes this is a super-duper day.
Why do I say this - well this afternoon (Monday 4th December) the South Glos Cabinet voted for the 'do-nothing' option for Hatchet Road rather than proceed with the bus lane option. This will save at least £1.8m, avoid the inconvenience of at least 12 months of temporary traffic lights, remove the threat of damage to our parks and provide great relief for people living alongside Hatchet Road. We are delighted - athough of course we would have liked to see agreement reached on bus lay-bys - but delighted nonetheless.
A big thank you to all of you who have supported our campaign - it just goes to show that with the right level of community engagement these things - described by a few people as 'a waste of time' can succeed.
