M4 Junction 18a Link
Consultation Survey

The emerging Joint Transport Study for the West of England has identified a comprehensive package of transport improvements for the area.  One of the schemes in this package is a new motorway junction between M4 Junction 18 and Junction 19 (Junction ‘18a’), and an associated link road to the A4174 Ring Road. The scheme would help tackle congestion problems in the north-east fringe of Bristol and help businesses operate more efficiently.

The study is considering potential locations for a new junction and link to the Ring Road. Two options have been identified that seek to avoid properties and important environmental sites.  They are called the ‘Western’ option and the ‘Eastern’ option.

Subject to feasibility, funding and consent, the junction and link road would be constructed from 2025.

South Gloucestershire Council would like to hear your views on the route options. To have your say please complete this short survey and ensure we receive your response by
