Roadworks to force closures

PUBLISHED: 12:00 03 October 2015




Road improvements worth £160,000 will be carried out in Pill and Portbury in the autumn.

The work will begin on Monday when Lodway in Pill will undergo drainage repairs before being resurfaced between October 12 and 16.

Work in Portbury will then take place on October 12 when Station Road and parts of the High Street will receive repairs to drainage, kerbs and ironworks. Resurfacing of these roads will then take place between October 19 and 23 with closures enforced from 9.30am-3.30pm.

A number of roads in the district have also been earmarked for resurfacing during the council’s micro asphalt treatment programme next month.

Roads including St Margarets Close in Backwell, Union Street in Nailsea and Northfield Road in Portishead are all part of the plan, as are Madeira Road, West Croft and Pyne Point in Clevedon. Roads in Yatton and Long Ashton will also be resurfaced.

The scheme, which will begin for three weeks on Monday, will make the roads more durable and skid resistant.
