Bristol cycle lanes

Posted on
  • Next week I am in Bristol for one day, teaching drivers to be more aware of cyclists.

    The training is taking place near Barton Hill. Not having been in Bristol for many years I am not sure what kind of infrastructure there is for cyclists. Are there cycle lanes on main roads, if so do they filter cyclists up on the inside of vehicles to get to the ASL? It would be useful to know this before I get there, and if there are any junctions like this near Barton Hill.



  • There are lots of the types of lanes you mention, mostly on the main roads, a couple that are segregated for a very short while, but also plenty that don't last long in either capacity and deliver you into pinch points with no lane of your own.

    My knowledge of the Barton Hill area isn't great but I do remember a couple of short cuts with a designated NCN route. Also a massive dual carriageway/flyover with no provision at all from what I recall.

    Good luck! Will add any further details if I remember any.

  • Thank you for the tip.

  • While I'm not totally sure of what your training involves i'd have thought the mixture of cycle facilities on and around Feeder Road would be good. The traffic is light to moderate.
