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
Week commencing 27th February we will commence works on the final section of Bradley Stoke Way. Griffiths have been authorised to complete between the Great Meadow Roundabout and the Great Stoke Roundabout. The objective is to widen the carriageway to construct a Metrobus lane on the eastern verge of the carriageway travelling from Great Meadow to Great Stoke. See Plan of work area.
We anticipate works will last for a duration of three months. Initially, for a period of three weeks, we need to complete some groundwork removing soil and vegetation using diggers and large trucks. This will need some traffic management so (off peak) temporary traffic lights will be on site for this period only. Advanced road signage will indicate when we start.
All works will be during normal daytime working hours Monday to Friday 0800 – 1700 and Saturday 0800 – 1300. During these hours, at times, we will be using heavy plant machinery to lay and compact foundations for the new carriageway. This may cause some noise and vibration to the nearest properties.
Apologies for any disruption caused throughout this period of work and thank you for your continued patience as we work towards the conclusion of our works in this area.
MetroBus bus stops further down Bradley Stoke Way
Works are ongoing on 3 of the 4 bus stops and are substantially complete except for WPD electrical supply connections. The 4th stop (Webbs Wood Westbound) we envisage to commence early December with completion soon in to the New Year.
