The B3133 serves as a vital link for village residents, traders and commuters. Resurfacing is taking place due to its deteriorating condition. The works will also include improvements to footways, drainage, kerbing, signage and road markings.
Repair work started yesterday (Monday 13th January) on the section of Kenn Road between Clevedon Salerooms and the junction for Lampley Road. This is due to last for one and a half weeks.
Repairs will then be carried out on the section of the High Street with Frost Hill, between the junctions for Henley Lane and Claverham Road, starting on Wednesday 22 January and lasting until the end of the month.
In order to minimise disruption these repairs will be carried out, where possible, between 9.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday under the control of temporary traffic lights.
Some road closures will then be required whilst further repair work is carried out in narrow areas of carriageway and then followed by the main carriageway resurfacing. All road closures will be in place overnight between 7pm and 6am Sunday to Thursday, with main and local diversion routes put in place.
The closures are scheduled to be as follows:
Sunday 2 to Thursday 27 February - North End Road between the junctions for Lampley Road and Ham Lane.
Sunday 2 to Thursday 6 March - the High Street between the junctions for Barberry Farm Road and The Avenue.
Sunday 9 to Thursday 27 March - the High Street between Wemberham Lane and Henley Lane.
Sunday 30 March to Thursday 10 April - Kenn Road and North End Road between Clevedon Salesroom and the Ham Lane junction.
Sunday 13 April until early/mid May - sections of the High Street between the junctions for Wemberham Lane and Henley Lane. More details will become available as the work progresses.
North Somerset Council’s deputy leader and executive member for highways, Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, said: “This is part of our preferred approach to resurfacing key roads instead of endlessly plugging pot holes and we hope that, by carrying out the works at the times we’ve specified, it will minimise traffic disruption. This is a very busy route for our residents so it is very important that it is maintained and improved.”
