Latest updates on water disruption due to Willsbridge burst water main.

Keeping you informed

Latest update: While we undertake major maintenance works to the Bromley Heath Viaduct on the A4174 ring road, motorists are encouraged to avoid the area where possible including using Junction 18 of the M4 to join the motorway network. In preparation for the expected increase in traffic, we have installed temporary traffic lights at the junction of the B4465 Wapley Road and the A46 Bath Road. These lights will come into operation on Thursday 13 July.

We are undertaking a widespread communications campaign to keep people informed before and during the viaduct works programme. The project team has held meetings, briefings and led roadshows on the works with major employers in the area, emergency services, schools, community engagement forums, stakeholders and sustainable travel organisations. We continue to take requests to brief interested parties and have a dedicated email address to answer enquiries, bhviaduct@southglos.gov.uk

We have held two rounds of public engagement sessions with residents and have spoken to thousands of people and considered their comments. Thousands of leaflets have been produced to deliver key messages about the project and the impact of the works. The latest version is available to download. We have also posted letters to 10,000 addresses in communities near the viaduct including Bromley Heath, Downend, Winterbourne, Frenchay and Hambrook.

A regular e-newsletter is available. You can subscribe to our mailing list below which opens a new browser window.

Our dedicated web pages are kept up to date with the latest information on the project and include travel advice, contacts and downloadable maps, toolkits and flyers. In addition, we have a dedicated Facebook page www.facebook.com/bhviaduct which will be updated with photographs, timelapse videos and travel information. Project news will also be shared via the council’s existing social media channels.

Media and press

Regular press releases on progress of the viaduct works have been issued to the media and we continue to engage with them on the impact of the works, travel information and progress. A major awareness campaign was launched on local radio stations on 5 July and will run for 6 weeks.
