Patchway Town Council have received further updates from South Gloucestershire Council regarding the subway infilling works and new crossing at The Parade in Patchway.
Works are programmed to start on Tuesday 2nd January 2024. The removal of the subway and installation of the new crossing is expected to take about 16 weeks, hopefully completed by the end of April.
Coniston Road will close at the location of the subway for the duration of the works. South Gloucestershire Council is letter dropping all residents and businesses within the Coniston catchment area to explain the diversion route.
The Council is placing project and travel information in suspended bus stops and site signboards.
South Gloucestershire Council is in discussion with Bromford about works to The Parade which the Council will carry out on their behalf following the main works to the subway. This information will be shared when it is available.
FirstBus will divert the No. 75 along Bradley Road/Stroud Rd with temporary stops installed.
If people are unable to walk to the nearest bus stop the Westlink Demand-responsive bus service is at https://travelwest.info/westlink/, phone 0117 457 8561. This service is free to Concessionary Bus Pass holders from 09.00 Monday to Friday and all day Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays.

The official diversion will be to use Hayes Way to avoid smaller residential roads becoming congested.
