B&NES Council has announced the intention to temporarily close North Road, from its junction with Bloomfield Road, to its junction with South Road; including Lansdown View and Crocombe Lane. The road will be resurfaced and the pavement by Chapel Walk will be widened. The closure will be for around two weeks and will start on or after Monday, August 13th.
Temporary closure will also apply to Mill Lane, from its junction with South Road to its junction with St. Johns Road, a distance of approximately 210 meters, and also the entire length of Hillview. Resurfacing work will begin on or after Friday, August 17th and is expected to continue for one week. UPDATE – THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
Traffic redirection signs will be in position when these roads are closed.
All this means that the road will have less potholes for when the cyclists come through North Road on 4th Sept. for the Tour of Britain race.
