A369 road closure for urgent tree work
The A369 at Abbots Leigh is set to close from Monday 25 April for five days to allow North Somerset Council to fell a number of diseased ash trees.
No traffic will be allowed to pass in either direction at Rownham Hill, a major route into and out of Bristol, between 9.30am and 3.30pm every day from Monday 25 to Friday 29 April. Marshalls will be present to allow access to residents and businesses only.
Diversion routes will be in place by connecting the A369 to the A370 using the B3129 (Beggar Bush Lane) near Failand and the B3129 (Clevedon Road) near Long Ashton. The public is asked to follow diversion signage.
This essential operation is due to Ash Dieback, a fungal disease which is often fatal. A rapid decline in the health of these trees means that urgent action is needed to remove them for safety reasons.
The road closure is in place for all motorised and non-motorised traffic, including cyclists, horseriders and pedestrians.
