ROAD CLOSURE - MONDAY 21ST AUGUST

A section of Braydon Avenue (Little Stoke) will be closed for "major resurfacing works" tomorrow (Monday 21st August).

The area of work is around the newly installed zebra crossing.

"The works will involve the planning off of the existing surface of the carriageway and the laying of a new surface. The work will start at approximately 7.00am and remain in place until approximately 6.00pm. These works will create a significant amount of noise."

More details: www.bradleystoke.gov.uk/articles.php?article_id=626

A South Gloucestershire Council spokesperson confirmed:

“We will be starting the resurfacing work at Braydon Avenue on Monday morning as advertised."

“We have not installed advance notification signage on this occasion as the contractor has managed to accommodate the work at short notice, as it only requires a one day closure. However, we have sent letters to residents directly affected by the closure advising them regarding potential access issues and timing. The diversion route will be well signed and supported by traffic management.”

A few readers have commented about cars using the new bus-only left-turn lane linking Bradley Stoke Way to the southbound A38 at Aztec West. It does look inviting, particularly now that more of the cones have been removed (this photo is from last weekend). Currently no 'bus lane' signage (other than the red road surface) in the immediate vicinity. Your thoughts? ...

A reader has asked us to share this post from from the Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group. Of interest to those who feed the wildlife at the 'duck pond'. ...

I was concerned about one of our cygnets so asked expert Ed Drewitt: Angel wing is a condition that might genetically appear every few generations, or as a result of poor diet and too much protein. Clare says that tourists are forever feeding them white bread and other rubbish and thinks this might be the cause. Angel wing starts by rapid growth of the wings, when the bone structure is not yet strong enough to support the weight of the new feather growth which is heavy with blood . The wing feathers then start to fall outwards and end up growing out from the body rather than correctly folded onto the back.
