Temporary two-way traffic lights are in place in Havyatt Road in Wrington to prepare for work which is due to start in the area.

The traffic lights span across a 110-metre length area of road, which needs to be repaired due to damage caused by subsidence.

There are also barriers in place on either side of the road to stop a wall from getting damaged, which runs alongside the Congresbury Yeo river.

The wall, which supports the road, is ‘bulging and in danger of collapse’ – which is causing the subsidence damage.

North Somerset Council is set to carry out the repairs which will last until March next year.

The council has also warned of a potential road closure 
if repairs cannot be made while the traffic lights are in place.

It said it endeavoured to keep ‘disruption to a minimum’ and will give people ‘as much advance warning as possible’ to plan alternative routes.
