‘These proposals will work hand in hand with other improvements going on in the city centre and will make it easier and more appealing for people to travel by bus, or by walking or cycling.

‘These plans will make a big difference to the community, so we'd really like people to share their opinions on how to improve these important areas.’

Funded by the government’s transforming cities fund (TCF), proposals include the introduction of a new bus-only corridor along Marketway and unicorn junction. In the south, a new bus-only route along the southern end of Commercial Road and Isambard Brunel Road is proposed.

And on Lake Road, plans include a new westbound bus lane towards the city centre as well as enhancements to the roundabout to improve safety for people walking and cycling.

The survey closes on January 31.
