Three-way temporary traffic lights are to return to Gipsy Patch Lane next week (from Monday 14th October) – and this time they will be in operation around the clock, i.e. including the morning and afternoon rush hours.
The lights will need to be positioned at the railway bridge and will include the junction with Station Road.
The temporary lights are needed by Wales and West Utilities whilst diversionary work is carried out on the gas main in preparation for the replacement railway bridge next year.
The work is expected to take up to two weeks to complete.
A spokesperson for South Gloucestershire Council said:
“It was hoped that this work could be completed without the need for traffic lights but for the safety of all road users this is no longer the case. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your continued patience.”
All shops and businesses on and near Gipsy Patch Lane will be open as normal.
Three-way temporary traffic lights were in operation at the same location for around three weeks in September, but during that period they were only in place during off-peak times.
