South Bristol Link

South Bristol LinkThe South Bristol Link has cleared its last legal hurdle and has all the permissions it needs to start building. The last day of the challenge period was 11 December 2013 and no challenges were received to the Compulsory Purchase Orders, Side Road Orders or Section 19 certificates.


The project now awaits full approval from the Department for Transport for release of the funds which is expected early in 2015.



James Durie, Director of Bristol Chamber of Commerce & Initiative at Business West, has been a supporter of the scheme for many years. He comments:


"We are delighted that the South Bristol Link will at long last become a reality. This is great news for the employers and communities of south Bristol. Our role is to help drive investment and employment opportunities for all parts and communities of the Bristol City region and have long prioritised improving transport and access from and into south Bristol."
