This area houses the main high street and transport hub. However, with a dominating junction and deteriorating high street it fails to support the wider neighbourhood.
Acting as a an active travel corridor, this area benefits from quaint streets and local pubs however without sufficient infrastructure it is home to much traffic conflict.
Densely populated and with a young population, St Jude's doesn't have the infrastructure to match and therefore suffers from rat-running and active travel inefficiencies.
Encased by A-Roads Trinity has a long list of missed opportunities from outdoor hospitality to active travel which means its entertainment and hospitality businesses can't fully thrive.
With a major active travel corridor running through the cul-de-sac's park, this area is the gateway to central Bristol but its amenities and patchy transport options are in dire need of investment.
Many businesses and gated communities call this area home, however without sufficient use of land and West Street amenities it is underserved and underappreciated.
Calm streets and industrial parks lack public transport options, pedestrian infrastructure and amenities leaving the area hard to get to and stay.
Lack of appropriate housing:
Red line - Border of the "Old Market Quarter"
Green lines - Cycle lanes, paths and shared paths
Dark blue spots - Bus stops
Pink stops - Voice e-scooter parking
Yellow lines - Taxi ranks
Old Market Street is a 15 minute walk from both Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Bus Station.
Please do try to travel to Old Market by other means than a car. If you have to though then you can find us off the M32's third exit or by heading off along Houlton and then Wade Street just before Cabot Circus Car Park, this also avoid the Clean Air Zone.
