Road closures – updated again!

The roadworks planned for Monday and Tuesday (Sept 19th and 20th) on the High Street to reduce the height of the speed table at the west end of The Batch have been postponed. We will keep you informed as and when we hear of their recommencement.

B&NES Council are about to carry out engineering works in the High Street to reduce the height of the speed table at the west end of The Batch. The present speed table exceeds the legal height limit and has caused problems for nearby residents and motorists.
Preparatory work to the pavements and kerbs is already under way and the road will have to be closed on 19th and 20th September to allow the speed table to be reconstructed.
Traffic will be diverted in both directions via the Batheaston Bypass on both days. High Street Closure order
