Let the chaos begin ...

REPAIRS to the Bromley Heath Viaduct on the Avon Ring Road, which it is  predicted will cause traffic mayhem around the Downend area, started just as the Voice went to print.

Warning signs went up at the end of June, just days before extra funding that should cut the works time to 33 weeks, was agreed.

The programme has been timed to start in the holiday season, so the full impact of the jams will not be felt until September. Drivers are being encouraged to find alternatives, including using a park and ride, which has opened in Lyde Green. Details: Page 7
