Overnight closures of Ring Road extended by a week

Four weeks of overnight road closures at the Wraxall Road Roundabout at Warmley have been extended by another week as its conversion into South Gloucestershire’s first fully signal-controlled throughabout nears completion.

The A4174 Ring Road, Tower Lane and Wraxall Road will remain closed in each direction Monday to Friday from 8pm to 6am until this Friday (17th September). Diversions are in operation.

The overnight work, which began in mid-August, involves resurfacing and erecting a concrete sound absorptive barrier for people living nearby.

The new traffic signals have been installed and the aim is to switch them on later this month.

Work started on the £6.9m throughabout in August of last year. South Gloucestershire Council says the conversion will increase capacity and reduce congestion at the busy junction.

The council is also planning changes to five more Ring Road roundabouts – including turning three of them (Siston Hill, Deanery Road and Kingsfield) into throughabouts. It is currently anaylsing the results of feedback from a public consultation.
