Access will be maintained for residents and business.

Information from B&NES Council in SPC’s 1 June 2022 news article:

People are being advised of road works and traffic diversions in Keynsham as the next phase of work gets under way on the construction of a state-of-the art waste and recycling centre.

From June 6, there will be a period of up to six months, when essential highway and utility works will be carried out as part of the construction of the multi-million-pound Keynsham Recycling Hub.

From time to time, there will be closures, partial closures and diversions in place along Pixash Lane from the junction with the A4 Bath Road to the junction with Ashmead Road to allow a sequence of work to be carried out by local utility companies.

B&NES Council’s contractor, Farrans, will be carefully scheduling works to reduce the level of disruption to residents and motorists.

There will parking restrictions along a short stretch of Ashmead Road to ease traffic flows and access to Pixash Lane will be maintained for residents and businesses, who will be kept updated.

The latest updates on road closures can be found on One Network.

Visitors to the Pixash Recycling Centre are advised to use the signposted route via Broadmead Lane roundabout and Ashmead Road throughout this period. 

From June 8, all access to the recycling centre will be via a new entrance on Pixash Lane, adjacent to the current entrance which will be closed to allow for the installation of a new electricity substation.

B&NES Council state that this will ensure residents can continue using the recycling facilities safely and easily until the new public Reuse and Recycling Centre opens later this year.

The new entrance and short stretch of road linking into the recycling centre, will be two-way, and used by the public and the council’s operational vehicles for entering and exiting the site. 

Inside the site, traffic flow will be one way. Residents in cars and with trailers will drive clockwise to the recycling containers and leave via the new roadway and exit gates. These changes will create more queueing space for cars and trailers off the main highway and help to avoid congestion in Pixash Lane. 

Recycling site staff will be on hand as usual to guide people to the correct containers and assist with recycling as much as possible. 

The latest updates on the project can be found on the council website:
