Could the wraps come off before Christmas? Covered-up road sign at the junction of the new Stoke Gifford By-Pass with the A4174 Ring Road near UWE.
Bradley Stoke Way
All new bus lanes are complete and traffic management has been removed. Landscaping continues, along with remedial work by Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd to fix minor defects. All work near Great Stoke Roundabout is complete, except for the connection of electrical power to new lighting columns on the verges, which is in progress.
Installation of the one outstanding MetroBus shelter on Bradley Stoke Way, on the northbound side of Bradley Stoke Way, just prior to Great Meadow Roundabout, has been postponed. A MetroBus spokesperson told the Journal: “We have a few issues with how some of the other shelters have been installed. Clear Channel, the contractor, is looking into our concerns and until the situation is rectified, the shelter installation programme has been suspended. We hope to resolve this shortly.”

Stoke Gifford By-Pass
Alun Griffiths are continuing their work to lay the road surface over the Ham Brook bridge, with the task due to for completion in early December. Landscaping along all sections of the by-pass is being carried out concurrently and is due to be completed by Christmas. Western Power Distribution has now installed metered supplies for the traffic signals at the Hambrook Lane and A4174 junctions, allowing South Gloucestershire Council’s signals team to commence installation of the signals along with the associated induction loops in the road. In the vicinity of the new bridge over the main railway line, near Kings Drive, Bristol Water’s work to install two lengths of pipework through ducts in the bridge platform and connect these into the existing main is due for completion in early December. The Journal understands that South Gloucestershire Council is aiming to open the by-pass shortly before Christmas, provided there are no unforeseen issues with the tasks that still need to be completed.
