Please sign our petition calling on the Mayor to stop BRT2
StopBRT2 enthusiastically welcomes the Mayor's announcement that BRT will not cross Prince Street Bridge or go into the Harbour or affect the Chocolate Path. We are also grateful for his recognition of the work carried out by our campaign.
Thank you George Ferguson.
We are now focussing our attention to the current two route options. There are 22 good reasons for opting for Hotwell Road rather than Cumberland Road - see the map below:
We are continuing to collect signatures, as a safeguard should there be unexpected developments that take us back to using Prince Street/the harbour and Chocolate Path. Over 3800 people have signed the paper and electronic petition combined.

The campaign to stop BRT2, which involves running a number of short, disconnected, concrete sections of track from Long Ashton Park and Ride to Prince Street, started a year ago.
We are still awaiting the outcome of the Public Inquiry held in June. The Inspector's report is now with the Planning Inspectorate. Following a huge fund raising effort, we employed a transport specialist to take apart the council's business case. We are hopeful of a positive outcome.
BRT was an issue in the Mayoral election.
