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 primary aim of the Woolwell to The George scheme is to reduce congestion on a major bottleneck on the northern corridor, which is the primary bus corridor from the north.

The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan sets out a development allocation of 2,000 houses at Woolwell (to the north of the scheme); therefore a key part of the scheme is bus priority measures aimed at providing a direct, fast bus route from the new residential development at Woolwell to the city centre.
