Tourist cycle plans are a distraction. Nothing in the Local Plan addresses how funding will be found for these major transport infrastructure changes. If housing developers are allowed to go ahead without infrastructure improvements we will be landlocked like Portishead with too many households for the space available on the roads. Drastic improvements to public transport would likely be insufficient. Nowhere is it mentioned how the single lane bottleneck into Bristol on the A370 would be addressed, which begs the question where will the 700 Backwell and 2575 Nailsea households find employment?

Summary
Need to address funding for major transport infrastructure. How will bottleneck on A370 into Bristol be addressed? Where will the new households find employment?
