MetroBus contractors Alun Griffiths have announced their intention to begin weekend working on a critical section of Bradley Stoke Way.
In a letter sent to residents living in the immediate vicinity of the work area, a Griffiths spokesperson writes:
“Having received the relevant permission from the local authority to work weekends and as a consequence of reduced natural daylight following the clocks going back, we will be utilising the weekends from now until Christmas for additional work.”
“This will ONLY be in the works area between the Aztec West and Patchway Brook roundabouts and ONLY between the hours of 8am to 5pm. This shall enable us to make greater progress in this area.”
“Apologies for any disruption caused throughout this period and thank you in advance for your continued patience, cooperation and assistance.”
The discovery of a series of unchartered gas and water mains has hindered work in this section of the North Fringe to Hengrove MetroBus route. In a report in the November issue of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine (out 5th/6th Nov) Griffiths reiterate that they are aiming to have the Woodlands Lane junction fully reopened by Christmas, although they are now warning that this is “dependent on signalisation work being completed by South Gloucestershire Council”.
