I recently reported a fault with the Vehicle Activated Sign (VAS) on the A432 Badminton Road near the Viaduct as you enter Coalpit Heath from the Bristol direction. I am informed that there have been a number of manufacturing problems with these signs since they were commissioned and the north bound sign has now been removed to the manufacturer for repair. It will be reinstalled as soon as it is returned. The signs will be monitored for future problems.
Westerleigh Road will be closed around the junction with Broad Lane on 26th July 2007 to allow a high-friction surface to be laid. It's hoped this will reduce the number of accidents where cars lose control on the sharp bend.
