Bradley Stoke Way (BSW)
Now that the works in this area are substantially complete there remain just some small works. Anti-skid surface is to be added in key areas along BSW on the approaches to lights, crossings and roundabouts. This will be done at off-peak times during April, with some traffic management. It should take around two weeks, but is weather dependant.
A38 south of Aztec West
Road box excavation is complete and we are preparing for surfacing. Work is ongoing on the MetroBus stop with kerbing and ducting work, including further service diversions and utility slewing. There will be a temporary pedestrian signal crossing that shall be configured on the A38 crossing to facilitate the remainder of the works. A temporary public footpath is maintained around the works from Aztec West.
South of Patchway Brook
The bus lane along BSW from Patchway Brook will remain coned and closed until legally signed and commissioned, including high-friction surfacing which needs to be placed. Additional permanent speed signage will be added as speed changes from 40mph to 30mph along this route. Road signage installation is partially complete and should be completed within April. Some temporary speed signage is in place until this is completed. Landscaping sub-contractors will be working on the verges.
Ongoing minor works to complete the zebra crossing area and an additional 20m of footway construction is to be undertaken near Aldi, where pedestrians will be diverted into the closed off new bus lane.
