Getting around Bristol is a joke
I HAVE lived in this amazing city for only five years and I have fallen in love with it. There is always something going on for all tastes and cultures. It is a city that could really go places if only the transport system was better. I won't hide the fact that I am a private hire driver, but getting around Bristol is quite frankly a joke, if ever there was a case for the southern ring road to be built, now is the time. Barrow Gurney being closed to all traffic has proved that the roads on the south west fringes of Bristol cannot cope with the high volumes of vehicles and if something isn't done soon this will only get worse. The majority of my work is from the airport to the city centre and recently it has been taking up to an hour, with business men and women moaning about this constantly and some foreign visitors laughing at the A38.
I have to say its not only the A38, its the bad timings on the majority of the traffic lights around the city, the poor positioning of bus stops and pedestrian crossings around the city that all add up to congestion.
I'm all for cycles and public transport but I can't do my job on a push bike. Bristol City council, South Gloucestershire North Somerset and Banes wake up now before it is too late.
Mr Ferguson I'm embarrassed to say I voted for you and I wish I hadn't. Come and sit in my car for a 12 hour shift and see what the business people of this great city have to put up with every day.
