Resurfacing work to begin on A4 Keynsham bypass this month
Published on: 01 Sep 2017
Drivers should expect some disruption to journeys around Keynsham later this month when resurfacing work is due to get under way on the A4 Keynsham bypass.
The first phase of the scheme will involve road closures, contraflow traffic, the suspension of parking and three-way traffic lights at Broadmead roundabout and is expected to last for three weeks from the end of September. It will be followed by a second, larger phase of work in spring 2018.
Councillor Mark Shelford, B&NES Council’s Cabinet member for transport and highways, said: “We will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum while this essential work is carried out. Undertaking full resurfacing now will both help save us money in the long-term and reduce the need for future repair works.”
The work follows the awarding of £2 million by the Government for bypass improvements in August in response to a joint bid by B&NES and Bristol City Council.
Details of the scheme, including dates and times, are being finalised – see www.facebook.com/keynshamvoice for updates.
