Winter 2023

We are endeavouring to update our matrix of expected roadworks across the area once a week from various sources available including updates from National Highways, Bristol City Council and One Network.

We welcome any feedback on this, including additions and omissions.

Please also let us know if you see apparent roadworks or congestion without an obvious cause or that don’t seem to be doing anything. We can then do our best to investigate.

If you’re concerned about travel and transport across the area (lack of it, future needs, state of the roads, poor resilience) again please let us know. Email us at info[at]


The latest schedule of roadworks is below. This can also be downloaded as a pdf here. Unfortunately not all the map links work from the pdf. We are working to resolve this.
