Resurfacing works at Rodney Road and Harcourt Close - w/c Monday 25 March - Saltford Parish Council

B&NES Council has contacted Saltford Parish Council to update on plans to resurface the road at Rodney Road and Harcourt Close the week commencing 25 March.

Please find details on One.Network at (image below taken from One.Network showing area of road closure and diversion route).

The following letter has been sent to residents from B&NES Council’s Highways Maintenance Team:

Resurfacing works will take place at the above location(s) from Monday 25 March 2024 and
are expected to take up to 4 days to complete, depending on the weather. Work will be carried
out under a road closure between 7am and 7pm.

Vehicles parked within the closure may be removed so as not to delay works. The road will be
re-opened to traffic at the end of each shift. Residents will need to make their own
arrangements to find alternative parking. Unfortunately, this also applies to disabled parking
spaces within the area of work, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Diversion routes will be in place for local traffic and advance notices positioned along the route
to warn drivers of the road closure (see map over for the work extents which are
highlighted in red and diversion which is highlighted in green).

We always try to complete works as quickly as possible, but please be aware the time frame
given is a guide and that poor weather or good progress on site may mean the timings can

Restricted vehicle access for residents’ private frontages within the road closures will be
maintained whenever possible and when it is safe and as site operations allow. Access will be
controlled by Traffic Marshalls, who’ll also give advice on likely access windows as the works
progress. Unfortunately, there will be times when access will not be possible, so please be
prepared for delays, disruption and make alternative arrangements before these works start.
Please consider providing advance warning to any deliveries or visitors you may expect during
this period and suggest they find parking as there will be no access of the site while the closure
is in place.

Just so you know:

  • Emergency services will always be given access when responding to an emergency.
  • Bus operators have been informed and will be re-routing services if needed.
  • We are working with our Waste Service Team to try and ensure collections are not
    disrupted, although regrettably there will be occasions when this is not possible.

Bath and North East Somerset Council are working in partnership with our Contractor Volker
Highways, to maintain our highway network. If you would like any more information, please call Council Connect on 01225 394041.

Thank you for your co-operation and patience during these necessary works.
