Scrap the road building and widening plans in the Joint Local Transport Plan. In a climate emergency any available funds must be used to improve public transport, walking and cycling.
The Joint Local Transport Plan for the West of England contains plans for 10 new roads and 5 big road-widening schemes. These plans will damage the countryside, increase traffic, pollution and carbon emissions, when WECA and all four authorities have declared climate emergencies. The Transport Plan also contains big plans for public transport, but the money to fund those plans has not been secured.

The climate crisis means we need to cut traffic by 40%. We need less roads, not more.
because I want the same in the East too!
300 people die each year in Bristol because of air pollution, our neighbours, sisters, brothers, mothers, friends, fathers, children. This plan is more nails in the coffin. Just sort it out now if not for anyone else for the sake of your own children. You can do the right thing!
