A £250,000 council scheme to improve the B3133 North End Road in Yatton begins on Monday 6 September.
The work will be carried out in three phases to minimise disruption.
North Somerset Council is working with housing association and house-builder Curo on the first and last phase of the scheme.
The council will be carrying out work during the first phase while Curo close the road to install a sewer connection into the new housing development at Eaton Park and construct a toucan crossing.
The council works will include:
- Clearing the overgrown vegetation and detritus to claim back overgrown footpaths and where required, resurface the footpaths
- Replacing damaged kerbs and ironworks throughout the site
- Repairing any damaged sections of footway
- Cleansing the highway drainage system
- Installing a tactile crossing point near the rugby club
- Sign cleaning and repairs as necessary
Once the council has finished its work by Sunday 19 September , Curo will complete the sewer connection works using temporary traffic lights for three weeks. The council will then return on Monday 11 October for phase three which involves a five night (8pm to 6am) road closure to resurface the road and finalise the toucan crossing.
Cllr Mike Solomon, North Somerset Council’s executive member with responsibility for roads said the aim of the project was to minimise disruption by carrying out as much work as possible during the road closure.
Cllr Steve Bridger, North Somerset Council’s ward member for Yatton added:
A diversion route will be in place.
