Editor’s note

Plans for Filton Airfield are moving apace.
The issue has been at the forefront of many of our thoughts since it was announced the site was to be sold and now we know that there are plans to create, in effect, a new mini town.
It is clear that thousands of new people will mean thousands of new car journeys and our roads, especially at some of the pinch points, cannot cope.
Town councillors were given a persuasive view of how this can be managed but there seems little doubt that the only way we can make this remotely workable is if the most effective public transport imaginable is put in place, and this means buses which are affordable and reliable, a Henbury Loop Line and even an Oyster-style card to enable us to hop on and off all the different buses and trains.
We’ve had a glimpse of the future ... all we need to do is make it work.

Richard
