Roads set for works

October 04 2018

TWO roads in Frenchay are set to be the subject of major works to improve drainage.

The work is being funded by a £3.5million grant given to South Gloucestershire Council to carry out major repairs and upgrades to road drainage systems at nine places.

It includes replacing or upgrading defective pipes, removing tree roots and replacing defective manholes and gully covers, to stop or minimise flooding.

Contractors have already been to Beckspool Road and Riverwood Road to carry out investigation work, digging trial holes in preparation for new drainage pipes.

In an update on the scheme the council said: “We will assess the results before drawing up a scheme to repair or replace the drainage systems in this area with as little impact on residents and road users as possible.

“Once we have further details of the traffic management required and how long this scheme is expected to take, we will hold a public drop-in session in Frenchay to advise and liaise with local residents. It is anticipated the drop-in session will take place in October.”
