MetroBus contractors Alun Griffiths Ltd have informed the Journal that a new full-time lane closure on Bradley Stoke Way will commence following the morning peak traffic period on Monday 14th November.
The closure of the nearside lane on the westbound approach to the Aztec West Roundabout is necessary to allow the construction of a new bus lane that will allow buses to by-pass the roundabout when making a left turn from Bradley Stoke Way onto the southbound A38.
The new lane closure, which is expected to last for several weeks, is likely to have a significant impact on traffic throughout Bradley Stoke during the morning peaks.
Work on this section of the MetroBus route has been delayed for several months due to the discovery of unchartered water and gas mains.
The reopening of the right-turn out of Woodlands Lane is dependent on the completion of the work on Bradley Stoke Way, due to the need to synchronise the traffic lights at the Woodlands Lane junction with those at the Aztec West Roundabout.
Griffiths say they still hope to have the Woodlands Lane junction fully reopened by Christmas, but warn that this is dependent on South Gloucestershire Council completing signalisation work within the same time frame.
