The Bristol Walking Alliance is a consortium of organisations and individuals campaigning to improve Bristol’s walking environment. We want to create an environment for pedestrians that is welcoming, safe, convenient and inclusive.
Walking as transport: Walking tends to be neglected as a transport mode in government funding and transport policies, or submerged under the label of ‘walking and cycling’. We want funding and policies to encourage public health, urban planning and transport professionals to work together to promote and enable walking as an important mode of transport.
Space for walking: Our streets are not always welcoming, safe, convenient and inclusive for walkers. We want to work with policy makers, transport planners and urban designers to make changes in street design that meet the needs of walkers. Read more
Walkable neighbourhoods: We encourage community groups and Neighbourhood Partnerships to actively look at how their neighbourhood could be made more walkable. This includes working with transport planners and urban designers on safe walking routes to school, employment, shops and local facilities. Read more
Streets for people: We encourage residents to take the initiative to make their streets more liveable for people of all ages and abilities. This includes working with the Council and the police to adopt traffic-calming measures and address pavement obstruction problems. Read more.
