A4174 Junction Improvement Scheme


We have looked into ways to improve the layout of the five junctions on the A4174 Ring Road between the Lyde Green and Kingsfield roundabouts. This is part of a wide improvements to ring road junctions proposed in the draft Joint Local Transport Plan 4 (2019 – 2036).

Public consultation on this scheme will help the development of a full business case that will be submitted to Government for funding.

Purpose of the scheme

The A4174 ring road is a key transport corridor in South Gloucestershire that gives a link between the A4 and Bath to the south and the M32 and the M4 to the north. This is a strategic route to avoid travelling through the Bristol city centre. It also gives access to local residential and employment areas.

The scheme objectives are to:

  • relieve congestion on the A4174 corridor between the Lyde Green and Kingsfield roundabouts
  • minimise the impact of traffic on the natural environment and improve the natural environment, where possible
  • improve access to the north east Bristol fringe to help open up business opportunities
  • protect and enhance access for non-car users
  • improve traffic safety
  • improve road quality and journey times
  • reduce carbon emissions

Proposed scheme

The scheme aims to improve the capacity of some junctions along the A4174 by:

  • using the available space on the approach to junctions better
  • changing the type of some of the junctions
  • expanding traffic signal control to places that have no traffic lights

The scheme will also aim to help non-road users (people walking or cycling) by improving connections and help the flow of public transport.

These are included in this consultation:

  • Lyde Green roundabout
  • Emersons Green roundabout (also known as The Rosary roundabout)
  • Siston Hill roundabout
  • Deanery Road roundabout
  • Kingsfield roundabout
