Could the famous unfinished Road to Nowhere finally be completed?

Situated next to Westerleigh Common, the road was originally started in 1974 and planned to connect South Yate to Badminton Road.

However it was never finished amid spiralling steel costs, with around a third of the planned route put down.

Now though after funding from WECA (West of England Combined Authority), the area could see the road finally finished.

WECA have given £200,000 worth of funding to South Gloucestershire Council to conduct a feasibility study on the area, this will look at the roads and potential for any bypasses for Westerleigh and Coalpit Heath. 

This could be the first step in the completion of the road.

After campaigning for the matter since his election, Luke Hall MP said: “I am delighted that working alongside my local teams across Yate, Frampton Cotterell and Chipping Sodbury that we are now seeing our “Get Yate Moving” campaign backed up residents really pay off.

“The investments represent real, tangible, and a renewed focus on investing in transport schemes around our town.

“Our campaign is now developing towards a solid plan to deliver improvements for road, rail and public transport ensuring this issue is tackled head on.”
