Ribbon cut to open new bus lane between UWE and Abbeywood roundabout
A new bus lane in South Gloucestershire which cost £1.5m to build has been opened
The Cheswick link connects the University of the West of England's Frenchay Campus with the Abbeywood roundabout in Stoke Gifford.
Work started on the project, on land to the rear of Hewlett Packard, during the summer of 2011.
The route has been mainly funded by contributions from companies involved in the Cheswick housing development.
South Gloucestershire Council hopes it will improve journey times and reduce delays by allowing buses to bypass traffic on the A4174 ring road and Coldharbour Lane.
