South Gloucestershire Council is warning of overnight road closures to allow essential resurfacing work to be carried out at the A38 Filton Roundabout between Tuesday 3rd May and Friday 13th May.
The work, which will involve removing the existing road surface and laying a new one, will start at approximately 8pm each day and run through the night until approximately 6am the following day.
Adverse weather conditions may affect the times and dates.
The roundabout was recently resurfaced by an external contractor, however the road surface has deteriorated and no longer meets our standards, so it is essential that these remedial works are completed as soon as possible. These remedial works are being completed by the contractor, not at the public’s expense.
For the duration of the overnight works, the roundabout will be closed and all traffic will follow a diversion route whilst the closures are in place.
Residents have been contacted in advance to request that vehicles are not parked on the road whilst the work is carried out. Access to properties and amenities fronting the site and whose only access is from the closed road will be available at all times, and every effort will be made to keep the disruption to local residents to a minimum.
Whilst the road is closed, additional essential maintenance work in the location is also being undertaken.
South Gloucestershire Council’s Head of StreetCare and Transport Mark King said:
“It’s important that we resurface the roundabout now, before the surface deteriorates any further, and we are carrying out the work overnight to minimise disruption to commuters and local residents.”
“Alternative routes will be signposted whilst the works are in progress, however it is possible that delays may occur on the surrounding network so we advise people to avoid the area if possible.”
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these essential works.”
A council spokesperson added:
“These works will create a significant amount of noise and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
