Road closures in Backwell will continue for an extra week, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Roadworks are underway in Station Road to install speed cushions, new road markings and signs as a 20mph limit is being introduced.

The work was scheduled to finish by Friday, but it is now expected to end on August 31.

The closures will operate in the same way as previously, but there may be times when access will be restricted due to the machinery and operations taking place.

Road closures will be in place from Mondays to Fridays, with the exception of the bank holiday.

Work will start at 7.30am instead of 8.30am to help with deliveries, and will end at 4pm each day.

The First X8 bus service will continue with a diversion via Wraxall during those times.

Villagers have been calling for better road safety measures in Station Road for several years.
