A38 Gloucester Road, Almondsbury – Bridge refurbishment works

The bridge deck at this location is in need of refurbishment to ensure the durability of the structure.  Works are extensive and will include repair of concrete, drainage, and the footway. In addition, we will replace waterproofing and bridge joints and finally renew the surfacing. We’ll work mainly during daytime hours and the bridge will remain open throughout most of the works.
