Update on Wapping Road, Bristol cycle scheme

Published on 15/01/2019

A new cycle route connecting the City Centre to South Bristol has opened to the public. However, the current Wapping Road scheme remains unfinished and is likely to do so for several months.

This is due to the adjacent building works for the Wapping Wharf residential development needing frequent access to bring heavy vehicles onto the site and concerns were raised that certain sections of this would have been damaged by those vehicles.

Once the development is complete there will be only one access point rather than current two and it will be raised to the level of the cycleway to allow for better continuity for those on foot and bike.
