Gipsy Patch Lane will be closed overnight tonight (Monday/Tuesday 18th/19th February) to allow network Rail to undertake a detailed examination of the railway bridge.
The road will be closed from 10pm tonight (Monday 18th) until 6am tomorrow morning.
The alternative route for vehicles is A38 Gloucester Road North, A4174 Link Road, A4174 Station Road, Great Stoke Way, Brierley Furlong, Hatchet Road, and vice versa.
According to an entry on the roadworks.org website, the detailed examination of the underbridge will be undertaken “using one road mounted mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) and small hand tools”.
South Gloucestershire Council previously published a traffic order stating that Gipsy Patch Lane would be closed for five days from 18th February, but it believed that this is a precaution in case the works need to be postponed or overrun.
The Council caused confusion earlier this month when it erected signs in Little Stoke Lane stating that the lane would be closed for eight weeks from 4th February. The work taking place there involves replacing a number of priority narrowings with full-width raised tables. The Council later stated that it only intends to close the road for a single week starting from 25th March.
