IMPROVEMENT works at Brockley Combe are set to start next month.

The works on the A370 Brockley Combe junction will start on Monday, October 2. This is part of North Somerset Council's Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP).

New bus lanes will be installed to tackle delays caused for buses heading from the airport and in both directions on the A370.

Changes will be made to the right turn into Brockley Lane. The turn will be moved to Chelvey Road, which will make the junction work more efficiently.

Cllr Hannah Young, executive member for Highways and Transport at North Somerset Council, said: “Creating a new bus priority junction at Brockley Combe aims to increase the reliability of buses to and from the airport including the A3, which runs every hour, and the X1, which will be changing to every 15 minutes from September. 

“The Brockley Combe junction has been identified as a pinch point from Bristol Airport and in both directions on the A370 towards Bristol and Congresbury. The changes will tackle delays at this busy junction, offering speedier bus services.” 

Works are expected to take 20 weeks.
