Signature information

We, the undersigned, call upon the Mayor to instruct Council Officers to find a solution to the regular and enduring flooding of Scotland Lane – a major commuter link between Stockwood and Brislington. Aside from the huge inconvenience caused to local people arising from the closure of this route, the annual cost of cleaning and re-opening this road (£30k) means that proper investment in solving this problem must now take place. Such a move would be cost effective over the long term. Consequently, this is a project which needs to be included in the Mayor’s next Capital Programme.

Background information

Access to Stockwood and Brislington is greatly restricted when this lane is closed. The drains are broken and problems with this lane have significantly worsened in recent years. When the lane is closed all traffic has to head out of Stockwood on the one remaining road, putting increased pressure on bus routes and impacting local residents and schools.
