RESIDENTS from Wrington, Redhill and Congresbury will be able to learn more about proposals to build a major road near their homes.

A meeting will be held on February 26 to discuss plans outlined in the Greater Bristol Strategic Transport Study, which include a road linking Weston and Bristol.

It would run from junction 21 of the M5 up to the south of the city passing a number of villages as well as Bristol International Airport via Wrington Vale.

The meeting is being hosted by Wrington Parish Council, which fears the road would ruin the nearby open countryside, harm wildlife and increase pollution.

The proposal for the link road is one of a number options put forward following the study.
