Maintenance of North Somerset’s road network continues


North Somerset Council’s investment in roads continues with the announcement of another major route to be resurfaced.

A stretch of the A369 will see the upgrade carried out during night closures from Monday 2 December.

The main route will be shut week nights until Tuesday 10 December, from 8pm-6am between Rectory Way and Sandy Lane. Pill Road will also be closed from St Katherine’s School. The X3A bus service will be affected and travellers should check with First for details.

As well as resurfacing, the £230,000 scheme will also include replacing damaged kerbs and ironwork, such as manholes and drain covers, and also repairing and replacing some road signs.

North Somerset Council’s Head of Transport and Infrastructure Colin Medus said: “The A369 is a major route linking North Somerset to Bristol. The maintenance works may cause some disruption, but by working overnight the contractor can reduce this impact, by scheduling the closures when traffic data shows the fewest users.

“We have also considered the work happening on the other side of the M5 junction 19 roundabout, at Wyndham Way, Portishead, to make sure traffic will continue to flow.

“Maintenance of our road network is vital to keep all of its users as safe as possible. We ask A369 users for patience, and encourage people to plan any journeys they need to take during the closures and allow extra time.”

The work will be carried out by North Somerset Council’s contractor Skanska. During the closure a signed diversion will be in place. For more information about the route visit www.n-somerset.gov.uk/roads, launch the map and search for the A369.
