Bristol City Council is the Highway Authority for all roads within the City of Bristol, with the exception of Trunk roads managed by National Highways.

The Council area does not include all of the urban area of Bristol, but retains borders closer to those of the former City and Council of Bristol. The urban areas of Kingswood, Filton, Bradley Stoke and surroundings are covered by South Gloucestershire Council.

The authority lies across the boundary of the historic counties of Gloucestershire and Somerset, with the boundary itself running along the River Avon.
