MetroBus Works Update: W/C 30th January 2017

M32 Junction 3

Narrow lanes are in place at Junction 3 in both directions. Average Speed Cameras will restrict speed to an average of 30 mph during the works. This is 10 mph slower than the normal speed restriction to protect workers. The narrow lanes will be in place until the work completes in March 2017.

M32 New Bus Only Junction

The narrow lanes and speed restrictions around the new Bus Only Junction have now been lifted. The Bus Only Junction has been cordoned off with cones for safety reasons. The work is due to complete March 2017.

City Centre

Piling has been completed and work has begun to build the new road over the centre linking Baldwin Street with St Augustine’s Parade outside the Hippodrome. The new road is expected to be open in April.

Once opened, traffic approaching this new junction from Baldwin Street will not be able to turn right towards Rupert Street and the Bear Pit. Traffic entering the city centre from Rupert Street will not be able to turn left into Baldwin Street. These new traffic movements will be coming into force once the new road is opened.

From the 6th February there are new traffic movements heading into the centre from the Bear Pit along Rupert Street. Traffic going to towards Baldwin Street will continue to sweeping past Electricity House. Traffic heading towards Park Street will continue straight on. This is to allow space to build the new taxi rank on the eastern side of Colston Avenue.
