We are just a few days in to the New Year, however, an extensive list of road closures have popped up already around Bath and North East Somerset. 

Here are some of the key road closures already planned to take place in 2024 across Bath and North East Somerset which you will want to avoid:

January 2–3:  The end of Church Street in Paulton between Holy Trinity Church and the roundabout with the High Street will be closed overnight from 9pm on January 2 until 6am on January 3. A five-mile diversion will be in place, taking traffic around the village through Farrington Gurney.

January 13–14: Work by Bristol Water will see a section of Wells Road (A39) in Hallatrow closed from the junction with Hart’s Lane in the village until it meets Bristol Road (A37) from January 13th to 14th.

January 22–24: Ham Lane in Paulton is set to be closed between January 22nd and 24th for vegetation works with the National Grid.

February 1–2: Wick Road (A368) will be closed between the junction with Moorledge Road, just north of Bishop Sutton and the junction with the road to Stanton Drew, from 9.30am to 3pm each day. Despite only affecting a short stretch of the A368, the official diversion route would take you on a 40-mile trip through Churchill and Bristol along the A38, A4174, and A37.

February 12–16: The Street in Marksbury will be closed between February 12 and 16 while sewer lining works are carried out by Wessex Water.

February 21–23: A segment of Tucking Mill Lane in Midford just west of the crossroads with Old Frome Road will be closed while Wessex Water carry out work from February 21 to 23. An almost 18-mile diversion will direct traffic the long way round via Midsomer Norton.
