There is now an increasing emphasis on improving public transport provision in Bath which we broadly support. We are also seeing the immergence, particularly as the election looms, of ad-hoc traffic management schemes which in the absence of an overall scheme for Bath or proper impact assessment we do not.
One of the often unrecognised effects of these two activities is the effect it has on the siting of and level of usage of bus stops. For instance the proposals for closure of Pulteney Bridge to various types of traffic have led to an increased use of bus stops on North Parade outside noise sensitive residential accommodation at times when it impacts the amenity of those residents.
