Portishead’s Cabstand has for years been problematic as North Somerset Council has tried to find a balance between safety and traffic flow and it plans to make changes this spring.

A domed mini roundabout at the top of the High Street and a larger one at the bottom of Cabstand are planned.

A puffin crossing is proposed for Wyndham Way, near the High Street junction, and a zebra crossing in Cabstand is set to be moved further up the hill.

Portishead Town Council’s recreation and works committee will debate the plan in the Members Room of the Folk Hall at 7.30pm.
