The Yate Park and Ride is finally becoming a reality. Over recent weeks, preparations to finalise the project have been carrying on in the background as the lockdown begins to lift. We have now agreed the location and secured the funding.
As someone who has lived locally all my life, I know how congested our local roads can be, and have consistently fought for better transport infrastructure for our towns and villages. This new Park and Ride will have around 200 parking spaces and will be built next to the South Gloucestershire Council Offices on Badminton Road. This should help keep cars off the roads, ease congestion and improve the connections for Yate and Sodbury residents commuting to places like Aztec West and Bristol.
With a planning application due to be submitted imminently, I hope that building work, on site, can start in the next few months. In the meantime, I am urging South Gloucestershire Council to approve the planning application for this vital proposal in the next few weeks. We cannot afford another delay to this project.
With your support, despite the challenging times we are living though, we will ensure that our Positive Plan for South Gloucestershire is delivered. I am determined to see this campaign through.
In the meantime I would like to hear your thoughts on this campaign.
