Wellesley School - Waiting Restriction Review

South Glos Council is proposing to replace the advisory keep clear markings and the advisory yellow zig zag markings around the roundabout with a no waiting at any time (double yellow lines) restriction, as well as replacing the remaining advisory yellow zig zags with a no waiting at specified days/times (single yellow lines) restriction.

The proposed days and times of operation for the no waiting at specified days/times (single yellow lines) restriction are Monday to Friday between 8am and 9.30am and 2.30pm until 4.30pm.

The consultation is open until 28 June.

You can find full details and respond to the proposal here.

Gipsy Patch Lane closure - suggestions for drivers and cyclists

If you regularly drive that way, you will know that Gipsy Patch Lane has been closed at the railway bridge for the last week. This busy commuter route will be closed for about another three weeks for BT to divert underground cables - this is just preparation for an eight month closure from early 2020 for the railway bridge to be replaced, ready for the Cribbs Patchway Metrobus extension to run under it.

During this first closure the footway will still be open for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists to get through. There have however been complaints about cyclists still riding through, which is dangerous on this narrow path. So Cyclists, please get off your bikes and walk them through - it's only a few yards.

The signed diversion for motor vehicles is via Bradley Stoke Way and the A38, but that doesn't make sense if you're heading for Filton, Southmead etc. A better bet would be to take the road past Parkway Stattion to the MOD roundabout.
