Capitalising on change – active travel: walking and cycling routes in the city

A number of road closures (Charlotte Street, Isambard Brunel Road and Guildhall Walk) have been introduced in the city to help enable social distancing, and to better enable people to walk or cycle. Would you like to see them continued?


  • A clear majority (78% of respondents) want the road closures to remain in place after social distancing restrictions are lifted.
  • The younger age groups are most keen and the oldest age groups, households without children and those with disabilities are the least keen although consistently the majority are in support of the closures across all demographic breakdowns.
