Alder King welcomes MetroBus investment announcement
Independent property consultancy Alder King has welcomed today’s announcement of a £27 million government grant to develop the next stage of Bristol’s MetroBus network between Long Ashton and Hengrove Park.
The grant will be used for the construction of over three miles of the South Bristol Link, a combined new road and rapid transit link between the A370 Long Ashton Bypass and Hengrove Park.
Martyn Jones, senior partner at Alder King, says: “All investment in the city’s transport infrastructure is to be welcomed but we are particularly pleased to see investment in South Bristol which has been disadvantaged over the years by its poor transport connections.
“Providing fast and efficient transport across the city and enhanced access to Bristol Airport is vital to Bristol’s economic prosperity and we look forward to the completion of the entire network in late 2016.”
