We are carrying out essential resurfacing work on the A4174 ring road at the Hambrook traffic lights/Bristol Road junction and between the Wick Wick and Lyde Green roundabouts from Friday 19 August to Friday 9 September.

This work is part of the Challenge Fund project, and will involve removing the existing road surface and laying a new one. In order to carry out this work as efficiently as possible and to minimise disruption to local residents and businesses, we need to make the following closures to the A4174 ring road:

  • Full closure of the westbound carriageway between the Bromley Heath Roundabout and Hambrook traffic lights from 8pm on Friday 19 August until 6am on Monday 22 August and from 8pm on Friday 2 September until 6am on Monday 5 September
  • Full overnight closure of the eastbound carriageway between Wick Wick and Lyde Green roundabouts between 8pm and 6am from 22 August to 1 September and from 7 to 9 September. This road will be fully open during the day and at weekends
  • Full overnight closure of the westbound carriageway at the Hambrook traffic lights from 8pm on Monday 5 September until 6am on Tuesday 6 September. This road will be fully open during the day

Advance warning signs will be displayed and alternative routes will be clearly signed throughout the duration of the closures.

We have informed local residents and businesses ahead of the closures and have notified the emergency services and advised them of access routes.

South Gloucestershire Council’s Head of Street Care and Transport Mark King said: “It’s important that we carry out this essential resurfacing work now, before the surface deteriorates any further.

“We are carrying out the work overnight and at weekends to minimise disruption to commuters and local residents. Diversion routes will be clearly signposted whilst the works are in progress.

“We understand that this may cause some inconvenience and disruption, and we would like to apologise in advance and kindly ask for your patience whilst the works are taking place.”

This resurfacing work has been carefully scheduled to take place when traffic flow is low in order to minimise the impact on the Metrobus programme. It has also been planned to take place before school holidays come to an end and to avoid the Bank Holiday and the start of term for university students.
