Traffic Information – Bradley Stoke Way
Surfacing and Lining Complete – Woodland Lane and Orchard Gate junctions fully functional
On 14th February the Woodlands Lane and Orchard Gate traffic lights were commissioned by South Gloucestershire Council and are now operating and fully functional including full right turn into and out of Woodlands Lane.
Woodland Lane junction on Bradley Stoke Way
All pedestrian crossings and footpaths are open with the exception of the footpath eastbound where Oak Tree Crescent meets Bradley Stoke Way as work continues in this area around to the A38 where until April we will be completing further Metrobus works including installation of a Metrobus Stop. Pedestrians and cyclists can still cross at the Aztec West junction and use the temporary footpath around into the A38, although it is advisable cyclists dismount through this section.

Over the next few weeks there will be further traffic management at off peak times as further signage has to be installed in the area and after at least 3 weeks the anti-skid surface in the area of the lights installed. In addition a landscaping programme into the spring may also mean some traffic management at times.
Griffiths and the Project Team would like to thank residents and road users for their patience and tolerance through the resurfacing work and the traffic management to achieve the opening of these junctions and apologise for the disruption and inconvenience this may have caused.
Metrobus Works Bradley Stoke Way, Great Meadow to Great Stoke
A large drainage excavation along the footway between Great Meadow to Great Stoke Roundabout is required. Design changes are required due to underground services and the area for root protection of certain species of tree. A 4-metre-deep excavation is required adjacent to the carriageway and a redesign has now been provided. This is different from our original scope so twenty-four-hour two-way temporary traffic lights are now required to cover the area of approximately 40 meters of road. This will not affect access to The Worthys.
To complete this work as safely as possible we will need to close the southbound lane at this point and use Temporary Traffic Lights for a period of two weeks. We shall endeavour to complete this work and remove the traffic management earlier than the two-week period. Currently we are seeking to begin this work from Monday, 12th June until Friday, 23rd June 2017. The lights will be manually controlled during peak hours 07.00-09.30 and 15.30-18.00.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time
