Road and Footpath Temporary Closures

To deliver vital flood defences, works to construct flood ramps and associated structures will mean part of Passage Road will remain closed until Autumn 2022.

The road closure is between the southern junction of Passage Road with the A403 and just beyond BMMjv’s site compound entrance, south of the junction with Aust Wharf Road. A diversion route is currently in place for both vehicles and cyclists, and an alternative footpath diversion route is sign posted.

We have had to close sections of the Severnway Footpath between Aust and Chittening. Project partners Bristol City Council and South Gloucestershire Councils, the Environment Agency and the West of England Combined Authority have worked together to ensure that other footpaths remain open to provide alternative routes. Full details of the diversions and closures are shown on the map images below.

Lamplighters Marsh - temporary footpath closure

Since 2019 and to date, we have managed to limit the impact of of our work upon visitors to the Lamplighters Nature Reserve. However, from now until Autumn this 2022, we need to temporarily close a section of the public right of way that runs through the area. This is necessary to carry out flood defence works here.

A diversion is in place with plenty of signage on display throughout the area. Access to the majority of Lamplighters Marsh will remain open for people to still enjoy the area, but visitors will only be able to enter off Station Road at Shirehampton. 

We apologise for any disruption caused and will do our very best to complete the works as soon as possible. See the map below with detail on the closure and the diversion.
