I strongly object to the proposal for a new Station Road – A370 link and the proposed timing of such a link in the first phase. Please see my comments above on the Nailsea and Backwell Transport Schemes.

No detail of the proposed modifications to Station Road has been provided and this is needed in order to comment fully. I strongly object to the possibility of closing or restricting Station Road to through traffic. The settlements of Nailsea and Backwell, whilst separate, are interdependent and this is the main arterial route between the two. To close it would isolate Backwell from the services of Nailsea town centre, and risk diverting traffic trying to reach Nailsea from Backwell onto narrow, unsuitable country lanes.
