We are carrying out essential resurfacing work on a westbound section of the A4174 ring road between the Hambrook traffic lights and the Wick Wick roundabout from Friday 7 to Monday 10 October.

This will involve the full closure of the westbound carriageway of the A4174 between the Hambrook traffic lights/Bristol Road junction and the Wick Wick roundabout from 8pm on Friday 7 October to 6am on Monday 10 October.

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 a full closure of the westbound carriageway.

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 colder weather and the surface deteriorates any further.

“We are aware that some motorists had difficulties following the diversion route last weekend which resulted in traffic issues in the area. After reviewing our plans, we have now increased the amount of advanced warning and diversion signs around the closure, including outside of South Gloucestershire’s boundaries. We understand that this closure 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.”
