North Somerset Council has announced a number of roads across the district will be closed for refurbishment next month in a bid to preserve the quality of the roads and improve safety.

The council will start its micro asphalt programme in August, which aims to extend the life of the road and reduce the risk of skidding.

The bulk of the work will be done in Clevedon, with roads in Portishead and Nailsea also being treated.

The work will begin on August 29 under road closures, with the scheme expected to take around three weeks to complete.

The works are being carried out by Skanska at a cost of £475,000.

Executive member for highways Elfan Ap Rees said: “The work will take place under road closures and we’ll do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum.

“It’s a quick treatment and the new road surface is safe to drive on after about half an hour.”

The roads involved are:

Clevedon: Fosseway (including Jubilee Place, Blackthorn Square, Closemead, Cherry Hay, Ruddymead, Windsor Close, Newport Close, Bradford Close, Hayward Close, Wickfield, Stickland, Camplins and Blackmoor), Westbourne Crescent, Westbourne Avenue, Willow Close, Queen’s Road, Copse Road, Esmond Grove (including Castlewood Close), Edward Road and Edward Road West.

Portishead: Bruton Avenue (including Holy Ridge and Denny Close).

Nailsea: Christchurch Close.
