More closures on the ring road in September
Published on: 26 Aug 2016
FURTHER overnight closures are expected on the A4174 Avon Ring Road this month for resurfacing.
The eastbound carriageway will be shut between Wick Wick and Lyde Green roundabouts between 8pm and 6am nightly until September 1 and from September 7 to 9.
The westbound carriageway at the Hambrook traffic lights will close from 8pm on Monday September 5 until 6am on Tuesday September 6.
The roads will be fully open during the day. Advance warning signs will be displayed and alternative routes will be clearly signed throughout the duration of the closures.
Work had to be cancelled on the weekend of August 19-22 because of heavy rain so will have to be rescheduled, meaning further closures.
South Gloucestershire Council’s Head of Street Care and Transport Mark King said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused. This resurfacing work will be rescheduled and we will confirm the new dates as soon as possible.”
The new Church Lane equestrian and pedestrian bridge over the A4174 opened on Saturday July 30, ahead of schedule. The bridge was installed in June by MetroBus contractors GRAHAM Construction.
It has a 58 metre span to accommodate the road which is being widened for a new MetroBus lane.
Ongoing cosmetic works to the bridge and its surrounds do not affect the bridge being used.
Hambrook Lane has also reopened after being shut for a year. A further closure will be required to undertake final surfacing works in October/November 2016.
