Rownham Hill will be closed overnight for 3 or 4 nights from the 3rd December - we have received this information form North Somerset Council.

Resurfacing works are due to commence on the A369 Rownham Hill, from its boundary with Bristol to near the junction with Bridge Road, Abbots Leigh.

These works mean that Rownham Hill will be closed between these extents, for each of the nights between Monday 3rd December and Wednesday 05th December inclusive. There is the possibility of a further night’s work. The closure will be operative from 20:00hrs to 06:00hrs. 

An electronic information board will be placed at each end of the scheme, at least one week before the works, displaying details.

A diversion route will be signposted during the closure times. The route is as per below.
Eastbound: A369 Clanage Road, south onto A370, west onto B3128 Clarken Coombe, right onto B3129 Beggar Bush Lane, right onto A369 Abbots Leigh Road.
