The city is making efforts to provide safe spaces on Bristol's roads for bike traffic. Bike lanes on portions of several streets have already been installed. There are plans for future expansion of bike lanes and trails (PDF) in the near future.
Low Maintenance Medians
The city has many medians that require ongoing maintenance, such as mowing and weeding. To cut down on the amount of hours these medians require the use of emissions-creating machinery, the city is installing low-maintenance medians wherever possible by landscaping with certain plants to produce ground cover instead of grass.
