Bristol City Council has been awarded funding to make small improvements to cycling and walking facilities around the city.
Help us spend it well.

What are Bristol Bugbears?

Fixing small things can make a big difference - bugbears are the small irritating things that hinder your cycling and walking through Bristol. It could be roads that could be made safer, missing signage, overgrown paths or obstacles.

Use the slider to indicate how critical the issues are for you.

Our current funding does not include bigger projects like new pathways, but if you mention these we’ll gather them for future bids.

Please note that the Bristol Bugbears website is not monitored for defects in the highway. If you are reporting a street or road defect (e.g. a pothole/poor road surface) please add it directly to the Bristol City Council Street and Road Problem Report Form.

Report your Bugbears

What happens when I’ve reported an issue?

You can add as many issues as you like. We will frequently review all comments and at the end of October, 2016, will create a list of priorities based on your feedback. As we get to work, we shall keep you updated to let you know how we are getting on.
