Clifton Suspension Bridge Toll House Project: update

Oct 13, 2016

As you may be aware, the Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust is planning to replace the existing 1950s toll booths on the Clifton side of the Bridge and the 1970s additions to the toll booths on the Leigh Woods side.

Over a number of months the Trustees have been reviewing various designs with Purcell Architects, discussing further options and seeking advice from heritage bodies and other key consultees, including CHIS.

The Trust has now agreed on a preferred scheme for further consultation and wishes to invite comments and feedback from the public and interested stakeholders before working up planning applications for submission later this year.

On 13th October representatives from the Trust will be on hand, at the new Visitor Centre, from 6pm until 8pm, to talk about the proposals and answer queries.

CHIS welcomes the replacement of the 1950s booths but considers it imperative that their replacements should complement Brunel's world famous Bridge. Do try to come and look at the plans and have your say. If you are unable to attend on October 13th you can, from that date, still visit the exhibition at the Visitor Centre or view the latest proposals and comment on line at
