Traffic management between Sandford and Avonmouth

We’re building temporary accesses and removing existing pylons, these roads are affected:

A construction traffic management plan has been agreed with the local authorities which sets out the roads our vehicles can use for construction work.

When we’re working on the highways, our contractors need to manage the traffic to keep everyone safe. This will involve using temporary ‘stop/go’ boards, traffic lights, and restricting parking and closing roads in some areas.

Our contractors put up advance notice signs to let local road users know of any traffic restrictions and closures.

We have agreed the following timings with the local highway authority:

Please note these dates may change at short notice.

We know our work may cause disruption to journeys and we’re sorry for any inconvenience.

We’re working with our contractors to keep traffic moving as best we can and to complete our work as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
