Inspection and Testing of A38 Gloucester Road Flyover
South Gloucestershire Council have advised of the following regarding the A38 Gloucester Road Flyover:
'We are carrying out inspection and testing of the bridge and associated retaining walls, which will require a number of lane closures both over, under and beside the structure between the dates of 3rd – 21st July. The works which will include some noisy activity – digging trial holes etc, will generally be limited to off peak daytime working – between 9:30am and 3:30pm, with one exception. On Thursday 6th July, the southbound A38 over the flyover will be closed for a period of up to 24 hours to allow for reinstatement of the main carriageway after the trial holes in that location are completed.
The current schedule of works is as follows:
I have highlighted in yellow the 3rd, 4th and 17th in yellow. On these occasions the road will be closed under the bridge, and traffic wishing to enter or exit Gipsy Patch Lane will not be able to go straight on or turn right. Depending on where it is coming from, this traffic will be diverted along the A38 to the next available roundabout to allow it to make the required movement. This will be clearly signed on each day of working.
I have highlighted in blue the 6th July. As stated above, the A38 Southbound will have to be closed from 9:30 in the morning for a period of upto 24 hours, although we would intend to open it before the morning peak on the 7th. During this time, all southbound traffic will be diverted to use the off and on slip roads and will have to go through the traffic signal junction with Gipsy Patch Lane.
The highlighted days are the most likely to cause disruption, but this is generally limited to the quieter time during the day.'
