Update - Coniston Road Underpass Works
South Gloucestershire Council have advised of an update to the planned works to the underpass on Coniston Road.
They have explained that the works are now programmed to start on Wednesday 3rd January 2024. This is later than they had wanted, but necessary in order to coordinate with other works on the network such as the emergency utility works at San Andreas Roundabout.
They say that removal of the subway and installation of the new crossing are now expected to take approximately 16 weeks and should be complete by the end of April. It will be necessary to close Coniston Road at the location of the subway for the duration of the works.
A letter drop will be undertaken by SGC to all residents and businesses within the Coniston catchment area, explaining the diversion route (pictured below). They will also erect an information board on site before the works start including information about the diversion route and about the scheme itself.
