Highways and Transport Committee

What we do

This Committee meets every 8 weeks, to discuss methods of improving the traffic situation and transportation system within the town. It also engages with Wiltshire Council to devise and implement measures to try to reduce traffic-related problems in and around the town. In addition, the Committee will receive reports and consider recommendations from the Wiltshire Council Community Area Transport Group (WCCATG).

A town that works

A historic working town, Bradford on Avon relies on a road-system laid down in its pre-industrial past, focussed on the town bridge - this means that our traffic problem goes through the economic and social heart of the town.

Understanding the balance that has to be struck between getting through or into town quickly, parking, and a pleasant and safe environment in the centre and surrounding roads is key to finding solutions.
