Church Road Frampton Cotterell bridge replacement latest

South Glos Council’s Highway Engineers are aiming to close the bridge starting on Sunday 20 July until Monday 1 September to enable the existing bridge to be demolished and replaced by a new hi-tech composite bridge deck over the peak holiday period.

Lessons were learnt from the closure at Easter and as a consequence the following key changes are being made:
  • No other avoidable road works will take place at the same time on the diversion route;
  • Large interactive display boards will be keep residents and drivers updated;
  • Improved signage of the diversion will be put in place;
  • Arrangements for bus service changes will be put in place in good time;
  • The South Glos website will be kept up to date.
The new bridge will be re-opened under 3 way traffic light control to enable the parapets to be rebuilt re-using the original local stones which have been safely stored, the services (water, phone lines, broadband etc) to be relocated from their diversion via the temporary footbridge to under the new bridge deck and the pavements and road surface to be relaid. The plan is to reopen the road fully by the end of November.
