If you live or work in the area you can make suggestions for improvements to the management and safety of roads, footpaths and cycling routes.

Examples of improvements include:

  • pedestrian crossings
  • cycle lanes
  • traffic calming
  • speed limits
  • waiting restrictions

Transport goals

All proposals are assessed in terms of providing safe, beneficial and cost-effective solutions. Schemes are costed and measured using the objectives set out in our Joint Local Transport Plan (2020 to 2036).

We score how any improvements will contribute to:

  • carbon emissions reductions
  • economic growth support
  • accessibility
  • better safety, security and health
  • quality of life
  • a healthy natural environment

Our scoring process provides us with a method of evaluating and comparing proposals consistently.

How it works

The local transport priority list is a process which is in place for people who live or work in the area.

This allows them to raise issues and make suggestions about changes and improvements to roads, footpaths and cycling facilities.

The list is made of 2 parts.

Investigation schemes

The local transport priority list of scored investigation schemes records all the schemes previously requested that are competing for detailed and full investigation by us.

Implementation schemes

The local transport priority list of scored and costed implementation schemes records all the schemes justified and competing for implementation in our ongoing capital programme each year.

You can find out more about the local transport priority list process.

How to request a highway improvement

The first step is to contact your local ward councillor to gain support for your proposal.

Once you have written support from your local councillor you can read our application notes and fill in the request form and email it to transportservices@southglos.gov.uk.

We will not accept forms that are submitted without support and evidence from local ward councillors.

We will email or write to you with our decision if requested.

What happens next

There are 3 possible outcomes of each investigation:

  • a simple low-cost affordable solution is identified and programmed for immediate implementation
  • no scheme is recommended and you are informed no further action will be taken
  • a more involved scheme is identified and entered as a priority scheme

For more information on the process you can view the investigation flowchart.
