Dear Mayor of Bristol, please stop BRT2 for the following reasons:

1. This proposed diesel bus service will destroy the recreational enjoyment of part of Bristolís Harbour, the Avon New Cut and Ashton Vale fields by introducing noise, air pollution, ugliness and traffic.
2. 60 buses an hour (from 3 BRT routes) crossing Prince Street bridge and using Wapping Road and Prince St by 2016 at peak times is unacceptable and unworkable.
3. Bristol Council tax payers are expected to fund 80% of any overspend on this high risk project.
4. Space will be taken away from cyclists and pedestrians in now well used areas.
5. The Harbour steam train to Create will not operate for 2 years during BRT2 construction.
6. BRT2 includes no new bus services. The proposed BRT service (rerouted from Hotwell Road) will be a less comfortable and longer route for most existing passengers. With changes to road layouts, existing services could be improved at a fraction of the expected cost.

the first signs are that the mayor wont waste bristols money.

I'm not sure if he's just going to waste it once on one spectacularly stupid thing but right now all i'm hearing is that he doesn't trust the budget control demonstrated so far.

a very small glimmer of hope

If the route is supposed to pass The Point development, I'm pretty sure George will have friends who live there and they will be quite objectionable to such a development.

Seems I was correct

Mr Ferguson has revealed he wants to change the BRT route from the Long Ashton park and ride site into the city centre so buses do not pass in front of the M shed museum and over Prince Street bridge.
