Introducing the contractor for MetroBus work in The Stokes

Alun Griffiths, MetroBus contractors in The Stokes, north Bristol.

By the community liaison team at Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd.

Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd has been awarded the MetroBus construction contracts for the Stoke Gifford Transport Link (SGTL), Bradley Stoke Way and Coldharbour/Stoke Lane.

Work started in August 2015 on the SGTL and Bradley Stoke Way, with Coldharbour/Stoke Lane to follow.

We are very proud to have been awarded this contract. The North Fringe to Hengrove MetroBus route will provide a cross-city public transport connection between the North and East Fringes of Bristol, through the City Centre and South Bristol via Bedminster to Hengrove Park. As well as reducing congestion and enhancing public transport links in the area, the route will play a key role in supporting future economic development in the North Fringe area.

We have set up our main offices at our compound at Parkway North; this will be used to manage all our packages on the North Fringe to Hengrove Package. As a considerate contractor, we have appointed a dedicated Community Liaison Officer, Carys Gwillym, who will be on hand to answer questions, queries and address any concerns local residents may have regarding the scheme. Carys can be contacted on 0845 86 22 327, between the hours of 8am and 6 pm Monday to Friday, outside these hours please leave a message and she will come back to you.

It is our intention to communicate and involve residents throughout the contract, with regular newsletters and a community webpage: [To send a compliment, query or complaint, visit the Contact the Site page.]

We welcome your feedback and would love to hear from you. We will also be running a regular ‘Contact the Contractor’ section in the Bradley Stoke Journal, where you can contact us to get up to date information relating to the works, and we will be able to answer any questions you may have.

We understand that large construction schemes can be disruptive, everybody’s time is precious, whether you are travelling to work, or taking the kids to school, diversions, roadworks and traffic management all play a part in causing upset and delays to your day. We would like to assure you that throughout the contract we will be working efficiently at all times, and ask that you take into consideration any diversions that may be in place during the scheme, when planning your daily travel. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you, in advance, for your patience and understanding whilst the works take place.

We are looking forward to working in the area, completing the scheme to an excellent standard, and getting to meet as many people as we can, and hopefully make some new friends along the way.
