Bath to South Coast Study

Bristol/Bath to South Coast Study
Ratified 2004 (2004)
Author(s) WSP Group
Purpose Transportation study

The Bristol/Bath to South Coast Study is a transportation study initiated by the United Kingdom's Government Office for the South West[1] and Bath and North East Somerset Council in southwest England.[2] It was undertaken by WSP Group[2] as a result of the de-trunking in 1999 of the A36/A46 trunk road network[3] from Bath to Southampton. The final study reports were published in 2004.[2]


The study showed that an A36-A46 link road (to the east of Bath) would significantly reduce HGV traffic in Bath. It was also shown to reduce traffic volumes in Trowbridge and Bradford on Avon.[4] The proposed link road was costed at £40M.[5][6]
