The Bristol Method is a knowledge-transfer programme aimed at helping people in other cities understand and apply the lessons that Bristol has learned in becoming a more sustainable city, not just in 2015 but in the last decade.

Each module of the Bristol Method is presented as an easy-to-digest ‘how to’ guide on a particular topic, which use Bristol’s experiences as a case study. The modules contain generic advice and recommendations that each reader can tailor to their own circumstances.

This module focusses on the air quality impacts and the traffic reduction interventions which are being used to improve the current situation. In addition to improving air quality, these interventions will help to reduce the other negative impacts of road traffic.
