Road improvements set for Tickenham

North Somerset Council is investing £605,000 to improve Clevedon Road in Tickenham, with work due to start next week.

Starting on Monday, 20 February, and running for 12 weeks until Tuesday 23 May, the highways scheme will include resurfacing, improving drainage, refreshing road markings and signage, repairing ironworks and clearing overgrown vegetation.

A diversion route will be in place during phase two which is expected to start on Tuesday 2 May until Tuesday 23 May. Full details can be found on One Network website at

Temporary two-way traffic signals will be in operation 24 hours a day during the first phase, which is due to finish on Tuesday 2 May The work itself will take place between 8am and 5pm each day.

Roads affected are Clevedon Road, Stock Way North, High Street, Bristol Road, Barrow Street, Main Road, Farleigh Road, West Town Road, Rhodyate Hill, Smallway, Frost Hill, North End Road, Kenn Road, The Triangle, Old Street and Tickenham Road.

A night closure between the hours of 8pm and 5am will be required towards the end of the scheme to allow operators to work safely while they carry out carriageway and footway resurfacing, and lining and drainage works. The anticipated dates for the night closures are Wednesday 3 to Tuesday 23 May.

Marshalls will be present to allow access to residents and businesses only.

We’re continuing our commitment to invest in the highway network and we look forward to seeing this popular route through Tickenham improved.

We’re doing our best to minimise the inconvenience to road users by carrying out the bulk of work overnight. While the drainage element of the scheme takes place, motorists will experience delays but every effort is being made to carry out the work on time.

Cllr Steve Hogg, North Somerset Council’s executive member responsible for highways

I’m sure residents will be pleased that we are improving drainage and footways  in the area, which will especially help to provide better routes to local schools.
