Do not widen Hatchet Road for MetroBus

This petition had 595 supporters

To cater for the MetroBus green route, the council will have to widen Hatchet Road to three lanes. That’s an extra ten metres wide. This will mean land grab of gardens, trees & parks. Reduction in size of Meade Park, The Royals Park, gardens and of course it will take many years for trees to grow back. Imagine crossing a four-lane road

It’s coming to your village, and the route will not utilise the dual carriageway of Great Stoke Way east of Stoke Gifford (they say it takes 14 mins longer!! – it’s actually 3mins,) it will come down Hatchet Road, past Co-op (Parkway Tavern), The Green , historic buildings to Parkway station.

To make this possible, all the hedges, trees, parks and properties will be destroyed and ‘replaced’.  Think that’s OK? Look at the trees destroyed for the 2+ lanes on Filton Road (Ring Road). How long will it take for those trees and the wildlife to return?

Do you want a dual carriageway in the heart of Stoke Gifford?
