Our planned closure of part of the A4174 ring road this weekend for resurfacing work has been postponed.

Due to the wet weather forecast for this weekend (19-22 August), the planned resurfacing work on the westbound carriageway of the A4174 between Bromley Heath roundabout and Hambrook traffic lights has been postponed.

South Gloucestershire Council’s Head of Street Care and Transport Mark King said: “Unfortunately we are unable to resurface the carriageway efficiently during heavy rain, so we are postponing the planned A4174 closures this weekend.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused. This resurfacing work will be rescheduled and we will confirm the new dates as soon as possible.”

The other planned A4174 closures will still take place from 22 August, and further updates will be provided when this postponed work has been rescheduled.

The following closures to the A4174 ring road will still take place:

  • 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.

This work is part of the Challenge Fund project, and will involve removing the existing road surface and laying a new one.

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.
