Another Road Closure
There is going to be a planned road closure at Keynsham Lane from Tuesday 30th August
2016 until Thursday 1st September 2016 18:00. There is a copy of the map showing
the location here.
The location on Google Maps is 51.693412, -2.608546 (as far as I can tell). The blockage
appears to be on the segment of Keynsham Lane that runs northeast from the junction
of St Briavels Road and Park Hill Road.
Retaining Wall At Netherend Cresent
From Two Rivers Housing:
A “contractor, Keepmoat, has been appointed to undertake the works and are progressing
the necessary Highway Dept permissions referred to below.
However we (Two Rivers Housing) have met them to discuss the traffic management plan
for the works with a view to access, parking, pedestrians and safety. It was noted
this is a daily pedestrian route for the local school with parents parking along
the road. The absence of pavement on the opposite side of the road, to provide an
alternate pathway, was also noted. With all this in mind, the decision has been
taken to complete the works during the school summer holiday when those issues present
far less risk and can be managed more safely.
In the period between now and the school holidays we will carry out regular checks
to confirm the continued safety of the area.”
There will be more information on this website when Two Rivers Housing have contacted
the Parish Clerk and agreed a precise start date for the works.
