Results Updated 17 Mar 2017

We recently held a consultation on our plan to permanently introduce a 40mph speed limit in both directions on the M32 in the vicinity of junction 3 (from a point 101 metres south of junction 3 to a point 22 metres north of the Severn Beach Railway Line overbridge) and restrict traffic on a further 900 metre section of bus lane (which is attached to the existing bus lane) on the M32.

This report summarises the findings of that consultation.

Overview

We are proposing to permanently introduce a 40mph speed limit in both directions on the M32 in the vicinity of junction 3 (from a point 101 metres south of junction 3 to a point 22 metres north of the Severn Beach Railway Line overbridge) and restrict traffic on a further 900 metre section of bus lane (which is attached to the existing bus lane) on the M32 (see the diagrams on page 7).

We are asking for your views on the traffic restriction on the extended bus lane on the M32, and the introduction of a 40mph speed limit.

This consultation is not seeking comments on the planning application for the bus lane itself, or the associated MetroBus works, as they were given planning permission in 2014.

The consultation will last for a period of four weeks commencing on 14 December 2016. It will close on 17 January 2017. Please ensure responses arrive no later than that date.
