Cycle Lane preventing Ambulance access to hospital

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 16:23, Friday 27 May 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

A cycle lane has been placed on the approach to the BRI hospital. When an ambulance approaches with emergency lights on, drivers of other vehicles are unable to pull over to the nearside of the road, as it is being blocked by cycle lane bollards. So ambulances are unable to get through the traffic. This is causing ambulances and patients requiring emergency care unnecessary delay. Were these delays to ambulances considered before installing ? Although installed to save life's, ironically they could actually be responsible for delaying emergency care and causing deaths. I was in a queue of traffic recently with an ambulance with emergency lights on. In the end the ambulance just gave up and turned their lights off. Eventually they did turn off to the hospitals A&E.
