Bristol's neighbourhood partnerships provide a way to get local roads improved.
Each of the 14 Partnerships have a budget of around £40,000 to £60,000 to spend each year, and they can choose to spend some of this on one road improvement scheme.
The schemes usually help to improve the safety and feel of roads within the Partnerships.

One proposal is chosen each year, and the tracker continues to display progress on design work and construction.
