  1. Proposed junction improvements at Grovesend Road/A38

South Glos are seeking views on their proposals to make improvements at the Grovesend Road A38 junction. Through the improvements, they want to increase capacity at this busy junction to reduce congestion and delays. 

At the same time, they plan to introduce new walking and cycling paths, linking up with other proposed schemes to encourage more people to consider more active and sustainable ways of getting around. Please share your feedback on the proposals by completing this survey.
