Road safety is a particular issue in or area particularly as vehicles rat run through Brislington to avoid queues on the A4 navigate around the congestion in the centre – this leads to speeding and oversize vehicles on our roads.

A single vehicle Crash in the 20Mph Newbridge road, it is clear from the damage to the car that it was travelling significantly faster than 20mph

we have a community speed watch group who are actively working with our local councillors Bristol Council and Avon and Somerset police to address speeding issues

Brislington north of the A4 is predominantly restricted to 7.5 ton vehicles and below though larger vehicles are permitted to enter for deliveries this is often abused
