Public Forum Statement 1:

It was highlighted that many of the bus stops at Temple Meads had been moved during the previous weekend which was much earlier than had previously been planned.  However, it was reported that pedestrians were still having to use temporary paths with very little signage being provided to help people understand where they should be going.  This it was said needed to be corrected as soon as possible, ideally within the next 48 hours because there are thousands of passengers coming into Bristol every day that need to know where to catch buses from when they exit the train station.  It was said that the current information from network rail informing people where to go was inaccurate showing bus stops that didn’t exist anymore.  Transport Officers said that they were already looking into this situation.
