Rodford Way No U-turn Legal Consultation

As we reported last January, South Glos Council is consulting on banning U-turns made by east bound traffic on Rodford Way betwwen the Abbotswood junction and the Scott Way / Heron Way roundabout.

The restriction anticipates that eastbound traffic would use the roundabout junction with Scott
Way to return in a westbound direction.

The reson for this is that 10 collisions resulting in injuries have occurred along Rodford Way in this stretch since 2011. Seven of them resulted in injuries to bike riders. The main factor is that vehicles were turning right - doing U-turns at junctions - across the path of people going straight on.

This latest consultation is about making the restriction legally enforceable and putting up the relevant road signs.

The consultation is open until 14 December.
