First hour: news review: with cabinet member for Transport, Connectivity, Labour councillor for Eastville Mhairi Threlfall - also Lib Dem councillor for Central ward Mark Wright. Smart cities - Bristol now has smart sewers - smart meters - VISA payment disruption hits Europe. Pompeii's Final Hours: the new evidence - Metrobus finally with us launched on Tuesday - cashless - Ashton Vale to City Centre and Temple Meads - guide rail is in the wrong place - lies from the council - South Bristol link road route has been dropped - Hengrove now not linked to the airport - West of England Metrobus team - First Bus have only taken on the M1, M2 and M3 Metrobus route - working with Karin Smyth MP to get the the South Bristol link route up and running - conflict of interest between First Bus' bus and Metrobus routes. So they don't want to run a Metrobus on routes where it will compete with their existing bus routes. Metro Mayor is against London-style bus franchising. Combined authority planning region's transport but the wrong kind of franchising system. First Bus m-ticket app doing data mining, disastrous reviews on Google Play.

Travellers in Greenbank View: Threat to Bristol's 'van-dwellers' as council and police draw up enforcement policy. Interviews with neighbour Alva and Travellers David who lives in a vehicle and Sam in a canal boat. Helen Holland bins and toilets. Greenbank View is the epicentre of the Bristol housing crisis since squatting residential property. Outsiders have been causing trouble, squatting was a safety valve, they've taken it away. Travellers now have no political clout because they generally don't vote. They propose several sites across the city that travellers can move around to. The problem is growing but the eviction is just moving the problem elsewhere. Anonymous Afghan refugee has been housed by St Mungo's in Kensington House, St George but many other residents are using crack cocaine and heroin and alcohol and serous mental problems which is an extremely dangerous environment for vulnerable people.
