First Avenue goes “one way”

First Avenue googleFrom January 7th 2013, First Avenue will be one way (towards St. John’s School) on a temporary basis.

Late last year essential gas main replacement work in King Edward Road meant an increase in traffic on First Avenue which resulted in damage to a number of parked vehicles.

Following a number of representations from residents of First Avenue, Cllr Will Sandry has worked with B&NES Council’s Highways team and Wales and West Utilities to make First Avenue one way for the second phase of the works which start on 7th January and will last about 7 weeks.

Will said: “I am pleased that Wales and West has been so responsive to the community. A number of residents of First Avenue believe that a one way system should be permanent so this temporary scheme will provide a good test of that idea.”

The roadworks will involve both closures and partial closures of Oldfield Road between King Edward Road and Bloomfield Road. Wales and West’s information leaflet about the works is available here: WWU Oldfield Park Bath Newsletter
