Traffic management proposals for Chipping Sodbury

This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.

Published: 03/06/2014

​The proposals include the introduction of a new 20mph speed limit around the centre of Chipping Sodbury and enhancing the existing pedestrian crossing facilities at the junction of High Street and Wickwar Road, High Street and Broad Street. This is designed to improve safety for pedestrians and to encourage passing traffic to comply with the proposed speed limit of 20mph.

In addition, the proposals recommend a new traffic calming feature on Hounds Road near St John’s School to increase the safety of school children as well as encouraging traffic to comply with the proposed speed limit of 20mph. Plans also include the introduction of several waiting restrictions around Chipping Sodbury and Station Road.

The purpose of the proposed traffic management scheme is to improve pedestrian safety, reduce the speed of vehicles travelling through Chipping Sodbury town centre, and to increase the availability of on-street parking opportunities at appropriate locations.

Plans are available at Yate and Chipping Sodbury libraries during normal library opening hours during the consultation period. For further information please visit

A public exhibition will also be held upstairs in the Town Hall in Chipping Sodbury on Monday 9 June between 2pm and 8pm. This event will give residents, businesses and other key stakeholders the chance to talk directly to the scheme’s designers and to provide feedback.
