An opportunity has arisen due to other works not progressing to undertake resurfacing of Kings Weston Lane.  The works will require day AND NIGHT time road closure.

Works will start on Tuesday 13th September for two days from Merebank Road to Access 18 entrance.  During this time access to Access 18, the Household Recycling centre, and the Water Treatment Plant will have to be via Kings Weston Lane form Long Cross (although Access 18 should be able to use the entrance on Avonmouth Way).

Works will then commence from Thursday 15th for two weeks until Friday 30th September from the Access 18 entrance, heading East to the M49 motorway bridge (note as sections of the road are completed heading East they will be re-opened but the road will remain closed at Long Cross for the duration).

A diversionary route will be signed and the environmental weight limit on Kings Weston Lane will be relaxed for the duration.

We apologise for the short notice and disruption that this may cause.

If you have any specific concerns or would like to discuss please contact the  Highways and Traffic team either by email  highways.traffic@bristol.gov.uk or by calling 0117 9036822.
