Metrobus update on Hartcliffe Way and Parson Street

Work to construct a new bus lane on Hartcliffe Way which started in January is in full swing –  and expected to be completed by autumn 2017.

Metrobus issued a statement this week giving updates on the work:

“Temporary two-way traffic lights have been installed at the junction of Novers Lane and Hartcliffe Way until the end of May to enable Wales and West Utilities to divert a gas main.

“Temporary three-way traffic lights have been installed at the junction of Parson Street and Hartcliffe Way and will be in place for another week to enable Western Power Distribution to upgrade the underground cables that serve the local community.

“The pelican crossing on Parson Street near Highbury Road has been temporarily closed to allow a retaining wall be moved back to widen the road. A temporary pedestrian is in place while the crossing is closed. The original pedestrian crossing is being moved to the nearby junction of Hartcliffe Way/Parson Street.”
