Bus stop in Chipping Sodbury High Street to be moved?

Local people have been concenrned that travellers waiting at the bus stop near no. 39 High Street (near Nelsons butchers shop) have to step between parked vehicles in order to get onto the bus, something which is difficult for those with mobility issues and those with pushchairs.

Councillors at the local Area Forum meeting asked South Glos Council to investigate the problem, and they've come up with a proposal to move the bus stop.

It is proposed that the existing bus stop is relocated in front of 29a/31 High Street (near Sante Et Beaute salon) and a build out is constructed incorporating a standard bus boarder (raised kerb). The build out will replace five existing car parking spaces.  A bus stop marking is proposed on the carriageway to protect the bus stop from parked vehicles.

More details of the bus stop proposals are on the South Glos website. The consultation runs until Friday 9 September.
