How can we improve Concorde Way cycling and walking route?

Lockleaze Bristol

Lockleaze residents and people who walk and cycle along Concorde Way are being asked to have their say on improvements to the route.

The council wants to improve a section of Concorde Way that travels through Lockleaze. This is the cycling and walking route that connects Stoke Gifford in the north to Cabot Circus in the city centre.  

Most of the route is off-road, away from traffic. However, in Lockleaze some of it is on-road, including at Dovercourt Road, Lockleaze Road and Constable Road. 

Before city designers start working on options that include on-road and possible off-road solutions, local people and anyone who uses Concorde Way are being encouraged to give their views about how it could be made safer and more pleasant.

Lockleaze is a growing neighbourhood, with more houses set to be built. To make sure our road and cycling network keeps pace with local growth, we are looking at all the ways we can help communities switch to sustainable travel options, such as public transport and walking and cycling. 

Work is set to start this summer on improvements to Muller Road, including installing a 24-hour bus lane, and we are now also turning our attention to the Concorde Way cycling and walking route. 

Concorde Way is a fantastic resource, and we want even more people to start using it. By walking and cycling more of your journeys, not only will you relieve pressure on local roads and reduce air pollution, you will also get all the benefits of being outdoors and taking some health-boosting exercise.  

We now need your early thoughts to help us shape our designs for the route. This includes how much you use Concorde Way, what would encourage you to use it more, and what matters to you most about the route.
