Existing Tesco store comes under pressure

The existing Tesco store in Bradley Stoke is coming under increasing pressure from construction activity associated with the new town centre development. Traffic signals on the access road to the store have been causing tailbacks for traffic entering and leaving the store, with one resident reporting a delay of half an hour on leaving the store last week. The traffic signals were removed last weekend (16/17 Feb) but promptly reappeared on Monday.

The traffic problems are in addition to the operational problems caused by the demolition of the existing store’s loading bay and annexation of part of the car park by the construction team. A large marquee has been erected alongside the store as a goods inwards area and the store’s fleet of home shopping delivery vans are now operating from temporary garaging in an arcade at the front of the store.
