More than 10,000 people living in Bradford on Avon will have a chance next week to get some answers from Wiltshire Council to their traffic questions.

The council’s Bradford on Avon Area Board is hosting an open discussion about highways issues on Wednesday, November 1 from 7pm to 9pm.

The St Margaret’s Hall meeting will invite questions about speeding, traffic, air quality, road maintenance, congestion and community transport.

Residents will also be keen to hear the results of a traffic modelling scheme to relieve traffic congestion in the town, improve air quality and improve safety of pedestrians and cyclists.

The Bedeman/Jennison Review in 2019 found that most of Bradford on Avon's problems are caused by the volume of through traffic.

It concluded that three out of every five vehicles crossing the town bridge originate from outside the town.

Wiltshire Council is due to publish its preferred options for the scheme following extensive consultation in 2022 and earlier this year.

Wiltshire Council's cabinet member for Highways & Transport Cllr Caroline Thomas, the council’s director of Highways & Transport Samantha Howell, senior Wiltshire Council officers, and the Office of the Wiltshire Police & Crime Commissioner will attend.
