A group has been set up to try and overcome traffic problems in Yate.

A working group of Yate and Dodington councillors has come together to try to come up with some creative solutions. A range of data has been collected from the local authority which has been used as a basis to identify key issues facing the growing town.

The paper, called ‘Let’s Get Yate Moving!’, covers the difficulties experienced by commuters coming in and out of Yate, residents moving around the town at busy times and accident blackspots along with a wide range of recommendations. 

Along with the recommendations, a call to action is made to South Gloucestershire Council as the transport authority to respond to these issues which local residents are facing on a daily basis and identify specific funding, action plans and associated timelines.
