Major Updates

MetroBus Works Update: W/C 18th September 2017

Bradley Stoke Way between Patchway Brook and Tesco

Most of the cones have now been removed. There is one small section left to do where a new pollution chamber has to be installed to help with the run-off of storm water. The cones will be removed once the work is completed in September.

Between Great Meadow and Great Stoke Roundabout 

Along this stretch of road we are building a new bus lane heading south towards Parkway Station and the new Stoke Gifford Transport Link Road that will connect Parkway North with the A4174 ring road.

The new bus lane area is almost complete and all that remains is the final surface course of tarmac and white lining. During early September, traffic will be switched to the bus lane to enable work on the northbound side which will include: new kerbs lines, drainage and a new footway. Local pedestrians will be diverted around the Worthys. All work will be completed in early October. The delay was due to drainage design changes.

Stoke Gifford Transport Link

As part of the MetroBus project we are building a new link road that will connect the A4174 ring road, close to the junction with Coldharbour Lane, to Parkway North and Bradley Stoke Way. This new road should significantly ease congestion around Filton and Abbey Wood.

The new road features two new bridges. The first crosses the main railway line into Parkway and the second crosses Ham Brook.

The carriageway is now 100% surfaced and 70% of the footways are now complete.

Final signage, landscaping, fencing and finishing works are continuing.

Work continues on the bridge over Ham Brook.

Once everything is complete, checks will be carried out on the road, bridges and traffic signal junctions. Once approved, the Stoke Gifford Transport Link will be opened to traffic.

Coldharbour Lane/Stoke Lane

The work on Stoke Lane is due to complete early autumn. The road is being widened to accommodate a new bus lane that means diverting utilities, installing new drains, realigning the kerb and building a retaining wall. While this work is taking place there will be narrow lanes with occasional short length, short term traffic lights to protect the work force.

During October, surfacing of Coldharbour Lane/Stoke Lane will take place mostly overnight between 8pm and 6am with the noisier planing operations finishing before 11pm. Local diversions will be in place.

UWE Roundabout to Longdown Avenue – 9th to 14th October

Longdown Avenue to Frenchay Park Road – 15th to 27th October

Frenchay Park Road

To improve safety, a new pedestrian crossing is being installed on Frenchay Park Road close to Five Acre Road. The new crossing will connect Frenchay Park Road with the new Begbrook MetroBus stop. The work is likely to take four weeks.

M32 Junction 3 (St Pauls)

The new bus lane will remain coned off until the average speed cameras are operating and enforced

M32 New MetroBus Only Junction

The junction will remain coned off until the Cribbs Causeway to Hengrove Park MetroBus services start.
