The council have listened to the concerns about the diversion route for the Dodington Road railway bridge works that Claire Young raised on behalf of residents at last Thursday's Area Forum. They asked Network Rail to change the route and it is now confirmed as:
via Bowling Road, Culverhill Road, Rounceval Street,
Bowling Hill, Station Road, Link Road, A432 Kennedy Way, A432 Cotswold Road,
A432 Smarts Green Roundabout, A432 Badminton Road, A46 Bath Road, Wapley Road,
Sodbury Lane and vice versa
Don't forget that there's a drop in for you to ask questions from 4pm – 8pm on Tuesday 15 March in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall.
At the Forum Claire also raised residents' concerns about how the Dodington Road and Kingrove Lane bridge works would interact. They will overlap, as they will be working on Dodington Road bridge between 23 May and 3 June and Kingrove Lane between 13 April and 8 August. However, both bridges will remain open to pedestrians and (dismounted) cyclists and horse riders. Also traffic flows across Kingrove Lane bridge are expected to be low enough to be marshalled.
