The parish council have been made aware of North Somerset Council’s £450,000 scheme to improve the A368 (Bath Road) which will start on Monday 25 March.
The extensive works will take place from the A38 Churchill traffic lights towards Blagdon and between Blagdon and the North Somerset border, and are part of North Somerset Council’s ongoing commitment to improving the area’s roads.
To minimise disruption and allow crews to work safely while they complete multiple activities at the same time, sections of the road will be closed in phases:
- Phase 1 – A38 Churchill traffic lights to B3134 Burrington Combe
- Phase 2 – B3134 Burrington Combe to The Batch, Rickford
- Phase 3 – Sladacre Lane, Blagdon to the North Somerset boundary
- Phase 4 – surfacing at the A368 junction with B3134 Burrington Combe
All other sections of the road not being worked on during a phase will remain open. Please note work will not be taking place between The Batch, Rickford and Sladacre Lane, Blagdon.
Residential and access to local businesses will be maintained throughout the road closures – please speak to traffic marshals or council staff who will be onsite throughout the works and can advise on access arrangements.
The scheme is due to take six weeks to complete and work is set to be carried out between 8am and 5pm, six days a week. The road closure will remain in place for each phase 24 hours a day to protect ongoing work.
Works will include patching and resurfacing areas of the existing road surface, improving and cleaning drainage, replacing and relaying the kerbs, road marking and signing improvements, clearing overgrown vegetation and replacing and repairing damaged ironworks.
North Somerset Council appreciates that this scheme will be disruptive for local residents and businesses, so will be carrying out these extensive works in phases to minimise disruption.
Letters with more details will be delivered to nearby residents over the next few weeks.
