WORK STARTS ON AVON RING ROAD

Site clearance has now started on the proposed route of the Avon Ring Road. Contracts have been signed for the next three months. This road, if built, will become Bristolís M25 and the largest Local Authority Road scheme in the country. The latest section, Stage II, is set to destroy a disused railway line, a swathe of Siston Common, and will be built on top of the Bristol & Bath Railway cycle path. A permanent camp has now been established and actions have started in resistance to this tarmac monster.

Fresh campaigners and activists are needed for the first anti-road site with its own cycle path!
