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.
Earthworks are 95% compete and drainage has commenced. Rather than hauling all the excavated soil away to landfill sites, it is being relocated to the South Bristol Transport Link Road where it is being used to landscape the area.
The work to create the new bus lane between Great Meadow and Great Stoke roundabouts is due to be completed in September.
The new road features two new bridges. The first crosses the main railway line into Parkway and the second crosses Ham Brook.
Earthmoving has now commenced to landscape areas to the final design profile. Once completed, fencing and finishing to the footways etc. will follow.
Surfacing works to the various islands on the A4174 ring road have taken place although some anti-skid works remain within the coned-off areas. Traffic signals installation at the junction of the Stoke Gifford Transport Link and the A4174 ring road will be undertaken by South Gloucestershire Council in August/September.
