Multiple roads in North Somerset will be closed so road markings can be re-painted.

North Somerset Council has already resurfaced many roads across the district and now it has announced when it will re-paint markings on them.

The authority’s deputy leader and executive member with responsibility for highways Elfan Ap Rees said: “We’re working with our contractors to get the road markings replaced as soon as we can after the surface dressing treatment has been carried out. Markings on the busy, main routes will take priority and get repainted first.

“The lining works take place in two parts as the centre and road edge lines are done by machine, and the other road markings are painted by hand. Any road studs also have to be replaced by hand.”

All of the roads below will be closed so road makings can be painted and road studs can be replaced on the following dates and times:

Sunday, July 23: CLEVEDON: 8am-4pm, Clevedon Road.

Tuesday, July 25: CLEVEDON: 9.30am-3.30pm, Kenn Road

Wednesday, July 26: CONGRESBURY: 9.30am-3.30pm, Smallway and Frost Hill/

Sunday, July 30: ABBOTS LEIGH: 8am-3pm, Abbots Leigh road.

Sunday, August 13: LONG ASHTON: 8am-4pm, Yanley Lane.

On Monday, August 14, roads in Abbots Leigh, Failand, Dundry, and Winford will be worked on. They will not be closed but traffic management will be in place.
