We've previously reported on the works to the Bromley Heath viaduct on the Ring Road, which will have major travel implications across our area. Although the Government was not prepared to stump up any more cash, the West of England Joint Committee did recently agree funding from the Local Enterprise Partnership Economic Development Fund (EDF) to reduce the work from 52 weeks to 33 weeks.
At the Frampton Cotterell drop-in officers confirmed that while they are not now planning to do many of the road closures they’d originally considered, they will be keeping the situation under review and have done the legal paperwork so they can put closures in place quickly should the need arise. If you missed that drop-in, there are two still to be held:
Longwell Primary School, Monday 10th July, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Dodington Parish Council Hall, Finch Road, Tuesday 11th July, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Traffic management will be put in over the weekend of Saturday 22 to Sunday 23 July, and the actual maintenance work will start on Monday 24 July.
