Footpath closing for resurfacing

A FOOTPATH is being closed temporarily for resurfacing this month.

The path, linking College Road and Halfpenny Bridge over the river Frome in the Oldbury Court estate, will be closed in sections, starting near the bridge, the city council's public rights of way team has announced.

Work is due to start in early August and is expected to take about six weeks.

The council says that the bridge itself will also need to be closed for up to a day during the works, as they include the ramp leading up to it.

The access track to the College Road allotments will be the last section to be worked on, with pedestrian access to the allotments accommodated where possible.

Notices on the path will show pedestrians an alternative public footpath route they can use.

The council has apologised for any inconvenience while the works are underway.

Anyone who needs more information should email rightsofway@bristol.city.council.
