We have received the following update from B&NES council:
"It was hoped work could start in April due to the urgency of the work, however due to the need to obtain various technical approvals and consent was slightly delayed, today we are confirming that works will begin on May 4. Traffic control will be in place for four weeks while scaffolding is put up and traffic will be reduced to one lane with traffic signals in place.
A full bridge closure will start in the week beginning May 31, with diversion routes in place for motorists.
