MetroBus will bring us many benefits - pledge

 THE team behind the £200 million MetroBus project has promised that it will bring many benefits to the Downend area.
The new rapid transport system currently under construction will   create an express bus system that uses a combination of segregated busways and bus lanes.
It is a joint project between Bristol City Council, South Gloucestershire Council and North Somerset Council.
MetroBus told Downend Voice: "Although MetroBus doesn’t directly serve Downend, passengers will be able use existing buses to connect to MetroBus. The significant improvements MetroBus is making to public transport will benefit Downend residents – more people on buses means fewer cars on our roads."
One of the MetroBus routes runs alongside the A4174 Avon Ring Road from Lyde Green to the M32.
