Road safety works begin – B3108 Lower Stoke Road

The B3108 Lower Stoke Road at the junction with the A36 will be closed from Monday January 11 – Friday February 5 for essential safety improvement works. This will involve putting in place a protective kerb and barrier along the embankment on the approach to the A36 traffic lights.

Bath & North East Somerset Council’s contractor Skanska will be working through weekends to get the work completed as quickly as possible.

Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to pass safely through the site along a route marked out by barriers. All businesses in the area will be open as usual with access from the Limpley Stoke village end. Shuttle buses will be in operation for public transport routes affected.

Local diversions will be sign-posted, as follows:
The B3108 Lower Stoke to its junction with Winsley Hill; B3108 through Winsley Village into Winsley Road; B3108 on into Bradford on Avon until its junction with A363 Bath Road; follow Bath Road into A363 Sally in the Woods into Bradford Road onto the A46 Batheaston Bypass and the A4 London Road West into Bath onto A4 London Road into A36 Cleveland Place/Bathwick Street into A36 Beckford Road back onto A36 Warminster Road through Claverton Valley.

Regular users of this route are advised to follow the signed diversion route and plan their journeys accordingly. The Council apologises for any inconvenience and disruption that will be caused.

The work has been co-ordinated with Highways England and Wiltshire Council. Signage was put in place before Christmas and the Council has also liaised with Monkton Combe School.
