Bath Hill in Keynsham to be resurfaced – please plan your journey

Bath & North East Somerset Council is advising people to plan their journeys between 15th – 20th April when work to resurface Bath Hill in Keynsham is carried out.

Works are set to begin around 7pm on Monday 15th April and are expected to be complete by Saturday 20th April, depending on weather. A full road closure will be in place between 7pm and 7am each day.

The council is carrying out these works overnight to reduce disruption in Bath Hill, which links Wellsway and Bath Road to the centre of Keynsham.

Bath Hill East and Fox and Hounds car parks will also be closed between 7pm – 7am for the duration of the works. Advanced warning signs are in place notifying motorists of the closures and will remain in place throughout the works, customers paying for their stays via MiPermit will also be notified. Alternative parking options in Keynsham can be found on the council’s website.

The council is resurfacing 3,448m­2 of highway during the works, bringing an area of highway equivalent to 13 tennis courts back to a high standard, including both roundabouts near Keynsham Memorial Park. Lining works will also be completed.

Councillor Manda Rigby, cabinet member for Transport said: “We’re keeping disruption to a minimum by carrying out these works during overnight closures, meaning the road can be open for peak travel times.”

“We know these types of works can be an inconvenience, but they are essential to keep our highway network at a high standard.”

Bath & North East Somerset Council will put in place diversion routes for traffic and advanced notices positioned along the route to warn road users of the closure, with temporary variable messaging signs at strategic locations. Diversion routes can be seen on

The council recently announced its resurfacing programme for 2024-25, with locations and dates on the council’s website
