Plans revealed for city transport
Plans to revamp transport around Bath with state-of-the-art buses and fewer lorries have been opened for consultation by the public.

The proposals link new park-and-ride sites with the city centre and the Bath Western Riverside regeneration area.

Buses to universities would be improved and digitised bus arrival information displayed at stops. Lorries would also need a permit to drive through Bath.

The consultation, part of the council's Local Transport Plan, starts Saturday.

Councillor Sir Elgar Jenkins, executive member for transport and highways at Bath and North East Somerset Council, said: "The changes will dramatically improve the public transport system in the city."

Exhibitions showing the proposals are being held in Bath at the following locations: Southgate from 19 to 22 November, Green Park Station on 23 November and Morrison's supermarket on 24 November.
