A38 road closure and future closures.

A38 road closure and future closures.

The following information has been copied from a letter from Gloucestershire Highways that was sent on the 20th September. To view the timetable for details of future road closures please click on the added documents. The map for the A38 Bristol Road closure has also been added to the attached documents.

What: Road closure for carriageway resurfacing Where: A38 Bristol Road – see overleaf for details of location When: 5th to 22nd October (excluding Sat and Sun nights), between 1900 to 0700 overnight

We will shortly be resurfacing the road at the above location. In order to ensure the safety of both road users and our work force we have under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984, as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.

Please note: Due to the type of engineering activities required to be undertaken with carriageway resurfacing, the Road Closure extents can cover an area greater than the actual area being resurfaced. This is to allow for such activities as movement and placement of machinery and material. This ensures that both road users and our work force remain safe whilst the works are being undertaken.

ACCESS In accordance with the Temporary Traffic Order, we are not permitted to allow any person or vehicle to proceed along the closed roads; with the exception of pedestrian access to properties, emergency vehicles, and statutory undertakers responding to an emergency situation.

Therefore, if you normally drive into or out of this area during the hours when the road closure is in place, we ask you to please make alternative arrangements.

In exceptional circumstances, some level of access may be considered on a case by case basis and only where it does not impact on our ability to undertake the necessary engineering works and where it is safe to do so.

We have to advise that any granted access through a road closure will be at the drivers risk as it is a works site and the carriageway may have raised iron work and a temporary surface.

DIVERSIONS We have established an official diversion route that will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the closed road. With regards to local traffic movements, there remain alternative routes which are outside of the road closure area that can be accessed at the discretion of the individual road user.

Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. If you have any queries please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions leaflet delivered with this letter, or contact us on 08000 514514.

Below is a map showing the extents of the Road Closure.
