Underground cables – roadworks and traffic management

Together with our contractor, Murphy, we’ve finished building temporary traffic access points and haul roads along the route of the underground cables between Nailsea and Portishead. We are progressing with installing cable ducts in preparation for laying and pulling underground cables a little later in the programme.

A construction traffic management plan has been agreed with the local authorities which sets out the roads our vehicles can use for construction work. We know our work may cause delays to journeys and we are sorry about this. Our priority is safety of the public and our staff. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

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

Whitehouse Lane

Whitehouse Lane is being used as crossing point for construction vehicles, controlled by manually operated traffic lights during working hours only.

We do not anticipate the crossing being in regular use and we will remove the lights when all our work in this area is complete.
