Emergency roadworks on A4 at Saltford causing long delays

  , , ,

📥  Planned road works

Roadworks on the outskirts of Saltford are causing traffic jams along the length of the A4 from Bristol to Bath. Temporary traffic lights are set up near the junction with The Shallows which is causing tailbacks.

There are delays of up to 50 minutes Bristol to Bath, from the Hicks Gate roundabout to the Globe roundabout. Delays are also experienced going from Bath to Bristol along the A4.

These are unplanned emergency works by Wessex Water, so it is not known how long they will remain in place.

📥  Car parking on campus, Road closures

The university is having an Open Day on Saturday 12 September, and we have the following advice relating to traffic on the day:

  • The city of Bath and roads surrounding the University get very busy, we suggest you add an extra hour to your travel time on Saturday to allow for this.
  • Midford Road is closed due to bridge maintenance work near Old Midford Road. There is a diversion in place via the A36 and local routes.
  • Also on Saturday is a special race event at Bath Race course, which is close to the Lansdown Park and Ride that services Open Day. Please be aware this may cause extra traffic in the area.
  • Parking on the day is free, but and car parks will be very busy so we would suggest making use of the Park & Ride buses available.
