The Chepstow Transport Study Exhibition and Consultation event goes live on the 2nd November and continues until the 13th December. This is the joint study mainly supported and managed by Monmouth County Council looking at the transport issues that have been identified in and around Chepstow. The study is being undertaken by consultants, ARUP.
The consultation includes a ‘virtual’ exhibition and by going on line the public can visit an exhibition room where they will find numerous boards describing the various options that are being considered in the study and have the opportunity to provide feedback and complete a questionnaire. Those that visit the exhibition can ask questions using the webchat function. Although electronic feedback is preferred for those that do not use the internet the information and questionnaire are available in hard copy and this is being advertised in the press or call 0117 240 1529.
Although called the Chepstow Transport study it does refer to local travel issues on both sides of the Wye and also looks at regional travel including the traffic congestion that has been encountered by traffic movement funnelled through Chepstow. So whilst the study is of particular relevance to Chepstow, Bulwark, Tutshill, Sedbury residents it is also of interest to commuters and motorists that travel through Chepstow to their destination.
The options discussed in the exhibition include generic issues such as behaviour change as well as active travel (walking, cycling), better public transport (local and regional – bus and rail). It also looks at road based options – a bypass.
