A370 to close overnight for roadworks

PUBLISHED: 09:00 21 September 2019

The A370 will be closed overnight next week.

The stretch between the junction of Church Lane and Stancombe Lane in Backwell will be closed between 8pm and 6am from Monday for six nights.

The £144,000 resurfacing works also include improvements to signage and road markings, and the installation of new drain covers.

North Somerset Council's executive member with responsibility for transport, James Tonkin, said: "We looked at options to reduce the impact of our maintenance work and have chosen to close the road overnight.

"This is the safest and quickest way to get this important work completed. Traffic monitoring shows us traffic levels are the lowest during these hours.

"Signs will be in place, and we will have traffic marshals to help those who live and work in the area access their properties."
