The roadworks could spell delays for drivers travelling in and out of the city

One of Bristol’s busiest main roads is set for roadworks that could cause disruption for motorists travelling in and out of the city.

The roadworks are scheduled for two different periods of 2-3 days each on Gloucester Road, allowing Wessex Water to carry out sewer repair works.
