SUEZ Recycling & Recovery UK have finally lodged plans with South Gloucestershire Council for a slip road into the waste transfer station and Sort It centre at Carsons Road in Mangotsfield.
A dedicated slip road aims to improve the long-standing issues of traffic queuing to access the site.
It will be located at the intersection of Carsons Road Link and Carsons Road to the east of the Siston Hill Roundabout. The land forms part of the existing verge and the slip road will provide a new single lane which will act as an extension to the existing road for vehicles turning left into the site.
Those wanting to access the residential areas to the north will be separated from vehicles trying to access the site, reducing queues and delays.
The schedule is running behind the proposed timescale which had envisaged plans going in last spring.
The planning reference is P21/00540/F for anyone wishing to find out more about the plans and to have their say.
The council has already said that land to the south of the recycling centre may present the opportunity to move the collection vehicle fleet from the Cowhorn depot in Warmley to Carsons Road.
This will not be assessed until after completion of the slip road and any proposals would be subject to planning permission.
