The Council has a series of schemes across the city to improve sustainable transport for local residents. 

The scheme covers the Crownhill Road from the St Budeaux Interchange Roundabout to the junction with Tavistock Road at Crownhill.

This scheme forms part of a programme of investment through the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF), that collectively, helps reduce congestion, improve air quality and help the city prosper by investing in infrastructure to improve public and sustainable transport connectivity on key commuter routes across the city.

Scheme summary

The Transforming Cities Fund will provide improved transport provisions across the city with particular emphasis on sustainable transportation links.

The improvements delivered through this scheme will improve bus journey times and reliability. This offers social and economic benefit to public transport users, especially to commuters with shortened journey times, and residents with reduced air pollution.

At the moment, Crownhill Road is on several bus routes with up to 182 buses passing through per day.
