Major work planned for busy road

RESURFACING work will see the closure of Nore Road in Portishead in the coming weeks.

North Somerset Council contractors are expected to begin the work, which will be carried out in four phases, on October 31.

The scheme costing in the region of �115,000 will see a one-mile stretch resurfaced, with extra layers being added to strengthen the carriageway in some places.

Stage one will be from the beginning of Cabstand to the Slade Road/Battery Road junction.

The second stage will run from that junction to West Hill, followed by West Hill to the Windmill public house and then finally from the Windmill to Ashdown Road.

Although the section of road from Slade Road/Battery Road was resurfaced two years ago, it was found to not reach the required standard and will be patched at no cost to the council.

Diversions will be in place while the work is in progress but access for residents and businesses will be maintained. North Somerset Council is asking drivers to be patient while the work is carried out, which is expected to take two weeks to complete.
