Bristol Road and Clevedon Road (B3124) also will be closed for three nights, starting from June 10.

Engineers from Skanska will see if improvements are required before resurfacing is carried out later in the year.

Cllr James Tonkin, executive member for highways, said: "Our teams have been in touch with businesses and homes to make sure the closures cause as little disruption as possible.

"There will be a clearly signed diversion route, but, anyone who is planning to travel in the area during the work may want to check out our roadworks website to help them plan their journey.

"The nature of the testing work means the full closures are needed to keep our crews and the people who use the route safe."

The closure will be in place from 8am-6pm.
