Bradley Stoke MetroBus meeting on Thursday 12th January.

A public meeting is to take take place in Bradley Stoke this Thursday (12th January) to provide residents with further information about upcoming MetroBus construction activities in the town.

A media note issued ahead of the meeting states:

“The MetroBus works on [the northern and central sections of] Bradley Stoke Way are nearing completion. Between now and the end of February, the traffic signals will be installed at the Woodlands Lane and Orchard Gate junctions and the final road surfacing and road markings will be completed. This work will require a number of temporary changes to traffic lanes, some night-time and weekend working and temporary lane/road closures.”

“To keep the residents fully up to date and aware of the implications, there will be a public meeting, this Thursday (12th January). The meeting will consist of a presentation by the contractor, Alun Griffiths, regarding the remaining road works and this will be followed by a question and answer session.”

“The meeting will take place between 7pm and 8.30pm at Baileys Court Activity Centre, Baileys Court Road, Bradley Stoke BS32 8BH

“The meeting will be attended by senior officers from South Gloucestershire Council’s MetroBus team and representatives from Alun Griffiths.”

As revealed in the January issue of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine, a further phase of MetroBus construction work is due to begin at the southern end of Bradley Stoke Way from the beginning of March, with completion currently scheduled for 11th July 2017.

MetroBus services are due to start “in the autumn”, with the launch being “phased in as and when the infrastructure is complete”.

    So the questions to ask …

    – why build the Stoke Gifford bypass after messing about with Aztech West and Bradley Stoke Way for two years, and not before
    – which surveyors where initially used that could not locate Gas and Water mains
    – is all this work worth it for three buses an hour
    – is all this worth it for no fast link to Bristol Parkway and the new MetroWest services

    I’m sure many people have questions …

    I attended the meeting, and found it very informative.

    Many people are concerned by the delays cause by the lost gas and water pipes, and consequential delays. Jack Lopresti has undertaken to investigate on financial responsibility for this delay, because utilities are required to keep accurate records, and as they are only 30 years old ….

    The future sounds promising with all complete in Bradley Stoke within 2-3 months, with the only possible hiccup being Rabbit Roundabout, will it have hidden pipes? Who knows? Stoke Gifford bypass will be open mid summer and Metrobus running by laste summer, early autumn.

    The negatives are the lack access to Bristol Parkway, unless you get a Metrobus to Harry Stoke, and change to another from Emerson Green to BPW, cost and no operator.

    It would help if there was a combined bus, metrobus and local train ticket that was reasonable
