Church Road Frampton Cotterell roadworks update

South Glos Council has announced that the first phase of works to replace the road bridge on Church Road, Frampton Cotterell, is to continue for a further week. The delay has been caused by unforeseen underground obstructions which have hampered work to divert utility apparatus (that's cables and pipes to you and me) from the existing bridge deck onto the adjacent temporary bridge.

Teams worked last weekend and will continue this Bank Holiday weekend to progress the works. It is anticipated that the bridge will reopen on Friday 25 April at 5pm and traffic diversions will remain in place until this time.

    It would be helpful if you put a sign up to the entrance with the update on it so people can start planning their commute to school/work as school holidays finished.

  2. It's not us that put the signs up, it's South Glos or the contractors. Presumably the signs will say closed until the road is definitely ready to be reopened, or is there a sign there that still shows the old date?
