A MAIN road through Frampton Cotterell is to remain closed for an extra week, South Gloucestershire Council has announced.

Works to replace a road bridge on Church Road started earlier this month and the road was expected to reopen to traffic next week after a three-week closure.

However, delays mean it will remain shut for a further week.

A council spokesman said: "The first phase of works to replace the road bridge on Church Road, Frampton Cotterell, is to continue for a further week.

"The delay has been caused by unforeseen underground obstructions which have hampered work to divert utility apparatus from the existing bridge deck onto the adjacent temporary bridge.

"Teams worked last weekend and will continue this Bank Holiday weekend to progress the works."

It is hoped the bridge will reopen on Friday, April 25 at 5pm. Traffic diversions will remain in place until this time.
