Red Routes

To maintain high levels of road safety on site, Red Routes and a no stopping policy are in operation across the site. Please be aware drivers are not allowed to stop, unload or park, on our road networks or Red Routes even if picking up or dropping off customers (please use the relevant car park).

Red Routes and no stopping areas are clearly marked around the Airport with a combination of signage and double red line road markings. Bristol Airport operates a vehicle monitoring and enforcement system. Any vehicle not convening to the Red Route restrictions will face an enforcement charge of £100 (reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days).
