The contraflow on the Bromley Heath Viaduct will be removed this weekend. To carry out this work safely, we need to undertake a full closure of a section of the A4174 Ring Road in both directions from the Wick Wick roundabout to the Hambrook traffic lights from 8pm on Friday 27 April. Both carriageways will be fully open from 6am on Monday 30 April. Sign diversions will be in place. Further information at

Pathway to education, employment and training

Our goal is to support the residents of South Gloucestershire to reach their fullest potential. A disability should not dictate the path a person is able to take in their life including in the work place. We are committed to challenging the misconceptions that exist around people with disabilities obtaining and maintaining paid employment and improving the offer of services available.

Further information on pathways to education, employment and training are available in our following guides:
